Spondylolysis

Spondylolysis is very common cause of low back pain. Spondylolysis is a defect in the connection between vertebrae, which are the bones that make up the spine. This defect can lead to fractures in the vertebrae that can weaken the bones leading to one bone slipping out of place.

Conditions that Causes Spondylolysis

  • Weakness in a section of the vertebra
  • Genetics. Individuals born with thin vertebrae are at higher risk for fractures. 
  • Repetitive trauma to the lower back can weaken the vertebra

Spondylolysis Symptoms

  • Spondylosis usually does not show any symptoms and most people do not know they have it
  • If symptoms do show it is the low back that has the most pain feeling like a muscle strain
  • Pain increases during exercises
