…Back pain due to spondylo and disc desiccation…

I have spondylolisthesis in the L4 accompanied by disc herniation.
I also have minor levoscoliosis and disc dessication in the thoracic spine.
I went to a chiropractor for this recently and he told me this was due to some injury where I fractured my L4 a long time ago.
I don’t remember any such thing happening though. I am to begin treatment soon.
I just wanted to hear some opinions about what could be done in such cases. Are there any new methods out there that could help me (specifically to prevent further degeneration in the dried up discs)?
If you guys want, I can send you my X-RAYS and MRI ([email protected]).
Please help me.
Thanks in advance for any help.

    A spondylolisthesis is not always due to trauma; many in fact are congenital. Make sure your chiropractor takes flexion/extension films to see if it’s stable. Chiropractic can help with the symptoms but won’t cure the condition. If the spondylo is unstable then manipulation is not a good idea, it can aggravate it. If it is stable its fine.
