I posted this message six days ago and have not had one response. I really need advice, please.

I am 82 years old and have just been diagnosed with Spondylolisthesis. My Dr. told me that I am Grade 2 but nothing needs to be done until I reach Grade 3 or 4. This sounds ridiculous to me--surely anything that can be done to try to prevent reaching Grades 3 and 4 should be done. I realize I'm pretty ancient, but I am still very active.
This condition was discovered because I complained about pains in the bones around my buttocks. My first complaint was 12 weeks ago and I was told that I was sitting too much! My next visit to the Dr. was six weeks ago and I told her that the pain was getting worse, so she sent me for X-rays. Six weeks later at my next appointment, and she told me the results of the X-rays, and when I asked what could be done about it, she told me "nothing". Then she told me about the Grades.
Do I just wait and do "nothing"? Should I be seeing a Physiotherapist or a Chiropracter? I need some advice here and would certainly appreciate any that is offered. Many thanks.
