My sister says she has spondylolisthesis. Are family members more likely to get the same thing?

In brief: Perhaps

There are several types or causes of spondylolisthesis (slippage forward of one spinal bone on top of the one below it).
It is not strictly inherited (as in a single gene), but the tendency toward it probably is influenced genetically.
