1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

When the spondylolisthesis is severe (degree of slippage of the spine), many patients develop symptoms of weakness, pain and or numbness radiating down their extremity/ies.
Surgical intervention-decompressing the nerve roots and stabilizing the spine can benefit.
