A case of sacroiliac syndrome and lumbar facet capsulitis coexisting with an asymptomatic grade II spondylolisthesis is presented. Spinal manipulative therapy is not contraindicated in the presence of spondylolisthesis if specific to the site of joint hypomobility and if the underlying spondylolisthesis is stable. Manipulation may prove to be diagnostic as well as therapeutic. The need to clinically assess whether the spondylolisthesis is symptomatic is discussed.
