I have disc protrusion ( (to the left at L5 s1)) and don't want it to become herniation. What is the best safe sport I can play.
It is a Herniation. By definition a disc protrusion is a herniated disk. As far as what sport is safe, that is a million dollar question. Really I would say, play what you enjoy and if the disk becomes a problem then seek medical care right away so you don't have any lasting or activity limiting effects.
Many sports. I typically tell patients to not shy away from any activity that keeps them fit and at a normal weight. That said, running and other high-impact activities can possibly accelerate degenerative conditions of the spine. Low-impact cardio exercises like swimming and biking are great. Also, yoga and pilates are excellent for building core strength.
