Not good: It somewhat depends on the extent of the herniations, but this can be very painful and debilitating. Injections and sometimes surgery is required.

See below: Not sure what your question is, but it sounds like you are doing physical therapy which is good place to start. If symptoms persist, then surgery may be necessary.
