In brief: Pain
Back pain is the most common symptom. Nerve symptoms can also occur: numbness, tingling, pain in the legs.
Rarely it can affect the ability to empty the bladder or bowels.

In brief: Spondylolisthesis
Spondylolisthesis often causes back pain and radiating leg pain.
When two vertebrae slip on each other it causes back pain as well as pinching of the nerves that come out between the two bones.
