In brief: Yoga
Yoga can increase disk space with stretching but it can also cause the disk to herniate further. Consult with a chiropractor, osteopath, physiatrist, or orthopedic surgeon before pursuing any exercise if you have herniation causing symptoms.
Many people with herniation don't even know it because the disk is not compressing a nerve.
