In brief: There are many

potential options for non surgical care including modifying life style such as not smoking, staying trim &exercising regularly along with physical therapy or chiropractic, acupuncture, other medications depending on any contraindications: NSAIDs, Lyrica, Neurontin, Cymbalta, Amytriptyline , Tylenol (acetaminophen).
Sometimes an elastic back support or inversion table help. Pain management options too, ie ESI
