Since it is a disc extrusion, it will be good if you go for a surgery to eliminate the compression of nerve root. Though post surgery it will be good to take a physical therapy treatment. Till then hot pack and exercise like back press, back extension, bridging, planks will prevent worsening and aid in healing.

Hope this helps you. Let me know if I can assist you further.
