1 doctor agrees

In brief: Spondylolisthesis

So what... Those are radiologic findings.
Only thing that matters is if you are symptomatic. Start with core strength regimen, nsaids, weight loss if needed. I have countless patients living with pars defects and slips that aren't surgical. I also have some that are.
