Nyspine.com: Most herniated discs this will get better eithin six-eight weeks. If you have undergone conservative treatment within that time, but continued to have pain than surgery maybe warranted. There're minimally invasive surgeries for the cervical and lumbar spine that patients can get excellent results.
