Back Pain 10 yrs

I had pains in lower back radiating to left leg for a very long time. When I did a MRI, it was diagnosed as Posterior diffuse protrusion with Annular tear of L3-4 and L4-5 discs indenting the thecal sac, mildly impinging on bilateral traversing root nerves and compromising neural foramina. What is the best solution to this problem? Should I go for surgery or try other conservative methods. What is provide a long term solution I play badminton daily have good control on my weight.
