I was diagnosed 2 days ago with Grade 1 Spondylolisthesis with 3-4mm slipage of L5-SI. I am 38 years old, and started having pain after moving 9 months ago. Dr. seems to think I may have had this issue for my enitre life, and it just now started giving me problems. I am going to start PT in a couple weeks, and hopefully that helps.
I have a few questions that I didnt think to ask the doctor. 1-Would a chiropractor help? (maybe push the L5 back in place?) 2-Will this continue to slip farther, or will it stay as is? 3-I have a job which requires me to be on my feet most of the day, and as of now, I can't be on my feet for more than about 2 hours max. Is there anything I can do to help with the pain while I am on my feet? (I did ask this question, but he said I could maybe wear a brace, but he doesnt recommend that as it will weaken the core muscles).
Any help or advise is greatly appreciated.
