Hello,

Since there is no compression, and these disc bulges are only abutting the nerve roots, these findings are compatible with herniated disc disease in the first stages. The treatment depends on your symptoms, initially, rest, NSAID drugs use and later physical therapy may help in such stages. Discuss with a spine specialist for these issues.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Erion Spaho, Neurologist, Surgical
