Hello, I have very much pain in L5 S1 spine from last 2 months. MRI report says:
"Annular tear of l5-s1 disc with diffuse posterior bulge, central & right para central prolapse & mild inferior migration of the prolapsed fragment causing compression of right exiting nerve root.
Please suggest me what I do? Pain is very much. Should I go for surgery or any other option available.
If surgery then how much time time required to recover & what is accuracy of surgery treatment.

Physiotherapy treatment is better then surgery.
Firstly reduce pain by physio then do strength exercise.
Avoid long sitting toward bending lifting weight.
Posture correction must.
