Thank you for posting your query.
I can understand the discomfort you are facing on account of pain due to herniated discs.
Surgery is definitely an option for treatment, but it is often not the first choice due to various reasons such as cost, high morbidity, risk of surgery or anaesthesia and patients' dislike for it.
In your case, you can start medications such as pregabalin
capsules, which are very helpful.
In addition, physiotherapy
methods such as ultrasound
and IFT would also be useful.
You should take adequate rest, avoid forward bending and lifting heavy weights.
