In brief: A slipped bone

Spondylolisthesis is the medical term meaning that one of the bones in the back has slipped out of place relative to an adjacent bone.
It is probably not due to the trauma but was noticed on the x-rays. It is often asymptomatic but may cause back pain. It can also result in pinching of nerves at that level of the spine.
