...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 (shatkovsky.v@neu.edu). Please help me. Thanks in advance for any help.

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
