Back pain radiating towards buttock. MRI done. Possible cause and preventive measure to be taken?

fI have back pain radiating towards my buttock, especially on the left side. I checked it with MRI and the radiologist reported: L4-5 small posterior central broad based disk protrusion and ligamentum flave buckling cause mild spinal canal and bilateral neural foramen stenosis . What does it mean? what actions need to be taken? What causes it? Is there any prevention measure? Thanks! Fikru Teka
