Therapy Usually fist: if the herniation is posterolateral, then epidural or foraminal steroid injection(s) is a possible answer. But your symptoms suggest that the herniation is more central. In case of lateral herniation, the pain would go down to the top of your thigh and your knee( L4 nerve root caught at L4-5). So I think you should try low back strengthening, traction, or a McKenzie certified therapist first!

No preference medica: it used to be part of the dogma of medicine that cold was to be used the first 48 hours after an injury, and heat after that. It was argued that after an injury heat would add to the inflammatory response and would make symptoms worse. The science has not held up, however! Whatever feels better to you should be used. No choice is wrong?

Most likely no: Your condition is known as patella alta! It does increase the joint forces in certain positions and activities. You may eventually need surgery If you have sufficient pain and discomfort. But not as a rule!
