How to cure disc protrusion and compressions in various nerve roots?

Hi. I am 25 years old.I have two points in my MRI.1.Large posterocentral disc protrusion noted at L5-S1 causing moderate compression on bilateral S1 nerve roots.Right paracentral disc extrusion with minimal caudal migration noted at L4-L5 with small sequestrated disc fragment inferiorly causing severe compression on right L5 nerve root.Please let me know how to get rid of this.. I have pain while bending, walking from my hip area to foot.There is no numbness of the lge though.Some docters adviced surgery and some adviced rest.Please suggest.This is affecting my work and i am morally depressed feeling that my life will end up with this pain for ever.Regards,SVR

Your MRI suggests pinched nerves in the lower back due to disc prolapse. You can take gabapentin capsules for pain relief. Physiotherapy would also help a lot. Avoid lifting heavy weights and forward bending.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
