Good morning.
You should take physiotherapy 1st..Electrotherapy, Exercises therapy & Manual therapy.
Mostly patients recovered with all these treatment protocol.
If physiotherapy fails then can go with Medication+Physiotherapy and if again it doesn't works then can think for surgery.
Our 1st Goal should be towards Pain,Radiculopathy & numbness should go diminish and after that Core muscles strengthening & flexibility of muscular system so you can work easily in daily living without pain killers.
But you have to take precautions whole life.
