Tisay I have had doctors tell me different things before. Go back to your family doctor he can help more then anyone. Pain can be from many things or from one problem. Sam

Tisay72, I am not a Dr... but have done a lot of reading on this... and my understanding is that mild scoliosis and spina bifida are pretty commonly also present in cases of spondylolisthesis. Have you seen a specialist? How much is the slip?
