Spondylolisthesis: Is the forward or backward slippage of one vertebra over another as in your description of an l5- s1 antero-listhesis. It is a frequent cause of low back pain especially in young athletes who engage in sports involving hyperextension of the spine such as gymnasts. If conservative measures (rest, bracing, nsaids, and physical therapy) are not effective, surgical fusion may be recommended
