Thank you for posting your query.
Based on the MRI
findings, the problem seems to be severe, and the chance of improvement without surgery is less. However, in most cases, one has to give a chance for conservative management. This includes rest, physiotherapy
and neuropathic pain
medications such as pregabalin
If the above measure fail, then, surgery can be considered.
