lumbar spondylosis PIVD

Dear All,
I had back pain, after some time I started getting pain in the right leg. It has become difficult to walk or stand for more than 2 minutes. MRI shows that I have " lumbar spondylosis PIVD posterocentral disc extrusion at L4-L5 level with associated liggamentum flavum thickening and facet arthropathy causing focal partial extradural block and compression on nerve roots with right propensity, Grade 2 posteriocentral disc protrusion at D12-Ll and L3-4level, Annular disc bulge at L5-S1 level, mild straightening of lumbar curve & small osteophyte formation.".

What is the best course of treatment other than surgery.
Kindly help me please.
