The more you ask around, more confused you will get. MRI technician is not someone who can give you a proper advice........he can give you "His opinion", but that is his opinion. It is for you to decide who are you going to listen to and follow. What are your troubles? There is no harm in continuing with exercises......if it relieves your symptoms then excellent, but if it doesn't then you still have the option of surgery. Even if you and your doctor decide to go ahead with surgery, exercises would still be needed.

Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain

Occupational therapy is usually given to reintegrate a person back to his occupation. Mostly OT work with fine motor skills of hand, energy efficiency, training on using adaptive devices after loss of function due to accident. For your situation I would suggest Physio
