Mri shows nerve root pressure due to disc protrusion, You should be having root pains as well as pain radiating to legs .Brace for lower back, avoid forard bending and lifting of weight,take anti-inlammatory/analgesics,do back strengthening exercise. If pain increases over a period of time interfering with routine activity and unbearable, you may have to undergo laminectomy/discetomy surgery. Seems it is tolerable now so you may remain on conservative treatment till otherwise.
