Hi..Weight is a issue in your case. Slip disc is becoming common in your age. Do not bend forward or lift any heavy weight. Disc slip cannot be reversed completely. Some extension biased exercises should be done under proper guidance of a physiotherapist. Likewise go for core strengthening to avoid recurrence. Exercises are a must for lifetime. Weight managment should be your priority as well.
