Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Depending upon the severity of your Symptoms, the treatment for Herniated Disc includes Physical Therapy, Muscle relaxant, pain and antiinflammatory medications. If necessary, you may also want to get Local Steroid injections if the symptoms are interefering with your daily activities. In few cases surgery like Microdiscectomy or open surgical repair would be necessary. Consult your Orthopedist and discuss your condition with him. Get adequate rest and avoid any back injuries.
Good Luck.
