Disc prolapse

Developed Ivdp 7 months ago during weightlifting... Low back ache for few weeks followed by left sided radiculopathy at the gluteal and calf regions. No deficits. Underwent variety of physiotherapy, medications, etc. Pain did not reduce however. Therefore underwent ESI and pain reduced by 50%... Currently having early morning pain and stiffness. It improves by end of the day. Is there any cure for disc other than surgery Can i restart gym exercises anytime?. How effective and safe is ozone therapy

Please see the spine surgeon or an orthopaedic surgeon. To know clinically whether you are getting better or worse, it is important to be examined clinically. Resumption of weight lifting is a very crucial decision and must be made after discussion with the treating surgeon. I am not sure about the benefits of ozone therapy.
