In brief: Exercises

Degenerative disc disease is a process of normal aging.
Would advise you to participate in aquatic and land based exercises. Pilates & yoga may beneficial. Judicious use of otc nsaids may used.

In brief: Continue conservative.

You could try yoga along with pilates type exercises.
Ultimately if all fails you may undergo surgery for a disc replacement or a fusion type procedure.
