Spondylolysis is a reference to a separation between joints of the spine. This separation can also result from fractures and as such, spondylolysis. Spondylolysis is synonymous with a stress fracture of the pars inter-articularis. It is more commonly seen in gymnastics, fast bowling (cricket), throwing sports, and tennis. The reason why spondylolysis is more common in athletes is due to their repeated hyperextension activities coupled with the rotation of the body.

What is the difference between Spondylolisthesis and Spondylylolysis?

Spondylolisthesis is forward slippage of one vertebra upon the other. The difference between a spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis is that in spondylolisthesis due to congenital factors or the results of premature wear and tear. Another difference is the forward slippage, which is more common in spondylolisthesis. However, forward slipped can also occur in spondylolysis, and in these cases, the condition is referred to as spondylolisthesis with a spondylolysis.

Fracture of the pars inter-articularis on both sides can result in spondylolisthesis, slipping of the vertebra over another segment. Spinal canal stenosis is more commonly seen in older patients, and they often complain of pain aggravated by walking and relieved by rest. Examination of the hip joint must be included for lower back patients as abnormalities of the hip joint such as labral tears, or joint contracture may present with signs and symptoms similar to lower back pain with radicular pain in the leg.
