Radiologist 's  Response
Hi, , welcome to HCM
There is significant disc herniation. I think it is not going to solve on just injection. There is a operations known as micro discetomy. It will definitely give relief.
You must go for MRI spine for detail information of spine pathology. Sorry to mention but your Xray is not attached here. You need to log in premium question for detail description of images.
Hope I have answered your query.
