Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation; though with disc protrusion causing pressure on the neural structures, surgically correction is typically advisable if feasible. It would be best to have this evaluated by a neurosurgeon or an orthopedician for suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
