lumbar annular tear and bulging disc
I just had an MRI and I have an L4L5 bulging disc and an L5S1 annular tear.  I am devastated.  I am athletic 39 and my husband and I are going to sail around the world.  What are my non surgical treatment options I am doing PT and It seems to be helping but I am only about 45% better after 8 weeks.  I am losing my mind.  I want to run and jump and play again.  Am I doomed?

Could running have caused this?  I started runing again after many years of just power walking and stair master and using the elliptical.  I didn't do anything out of the ordinary.  I work out 6 days a week run about 2 and use the elliptical the rest and weight train 3 days a week, or I used to .  I just woke up with back pain one day!
