Thanks for writing to us.
The herniated discs of the spine if they start affecting the nerve roots causing the shooting pains and muscle weakness, then surgery is the best thing to restore your normal life. physiotherapy cannot revert such gross changes.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
