Treatment really depends on the severity, and to be quite honest with you its not curative. It more a matter of trying to build up the surrounding musculature to compensate.

If your If your having a lot of numbness, severe pain, leg weakness, problems with balance, and or bowel and bladder problems, you might want to take a look at Surgery. Hopefully it won't get to that point.
