In brief: Many options!

However, this is as long as there are not motor deficits (weakness) yet.
If there is weakness, it becomes a more important discussion. If no weakness, and stable, then physical therapy should be your first stop. From there, epidural injections can be helpful, as well as medications, including oral steroids acutely can help. Many modalities, including things like acupuncture. Avoid sx until needed.
