In brief: Not likely to help
Ayurvedic treatment is not likely to have any effect on disc prolapse and cord compression, as the symptoms are due to a part of the disc physically pressing on one's spinal cord or spinal nerves.
Some sort of neurosurgical procedure is usually needed to move or remove the part that is compressing the spinal cord.

In brief: See below
Cord compression can be a serious issue with irreversible damage and possible paralysis.
Please consult your physician for a detailed history and physical examination. Ayurveda treatment may potentially help your symptoms, but you should be evaluated by a spine specialist prior to starting this type of treatment.
