Is there any non-surgical treatment for L4-L5 disc bulge ?

Hello Sir/Madam, I am suffering from severe lower back pain since 2 months. Background : ------------------- I took 3 weeks bed rest. The pain reduced for about a month and again the symptoms are re-occuring. Severe pain in lower back (mainly right side) and the pain is radiating to my right leg. I also experience numbness on right leg with difficulty in walking after I sit for 2 hours continuosly. I took MRI scanning and there is disc bulge in L4-L5 and L5-S1 discs which is touching the nerve roots . I was suggested to go for operation in which they will cut the bulged part of the disc. I am not for operation and am looking for non-surgical method to correct the problem. Could you please suggest me, what kind of treatment will suit me. Also the approximate cost for the treatment.
