Cervical Spondylolisthesis symptoms can include neck pain, stiffness, pain running from the neck to the shoulders and arms, or muscular pain in the shoulders.

Cervical spondylolisthesis is associated with spinal defect called “spina bifida occulta”. This condition is observed when the two parts of the bone fail to connect and leave as an opening in the bone.

Slippage also can cause pressure on a nerve. As the spine slips forward, the nerves may be squeezed where they exit the spine. This condition also reduces space in the spinal canal where the vertebra has slipped. This can put extra pressure on the nerve tissues inside the canal. Nerve compression can cause symptoms where the nerve travels and may include numbness, tingling, slowed reflexes and muscle weakness.
