Back pain.: Spondylolisthesis can be associated with back pain and stiffness. Due to the lack of activity, the muscles around the listhesis (such as the quad lumborum) can secondarily get tight. Gentle stretching exercises can be helpful. I suggest initially doing this under the supervision of a physical therapist.
