In brief: See below

There is a term called isthmic spondylolisthesis that summarizes what you have.
Basically at some point you developed a fracture in a part of the spine known as the pars interarticularis and this allowed one of your vertebrae to shift forward on the other. It is a fairly common cause of back and leg pain. Many good treatment options. Discuss directly with your doctor.
