My experience a few years ago : After a MRI scan to investigate and find compressed & slipped discs, it was recommended I should have surgery; but I decided first to visit a Sports injury Physiotherapist and requested that he stretched my spine after a massage and point me in the right direction with some Exercises, and to my relief the problem eased.
I then designed floor exercises based on the Physiotherapists advice to help stop a return of the problem…I now do the exercises on a regular basis and ensure I drink enough water to help the Discs rejuvenate from daily pressure etc.
That was at least three plus years ago and I have not looked back; perhaps grateful for his words that surgery is the very last option for anyone to consider.
My exercises are described here [https://sites.google.com/site/beauxreflets/keep-fit7]
I hope you can find relief through the best means for your particular difficulties and situation.
