In brief: Several can help

You can see your primary doctor, a neurologist, a physiatrist, a pain management specialist, an orthopedist or a neurosurgeon for treatment with 90% usually treated non surgically.
This could include: medication, traction, bracing, physical therapy/exercises, time and possible epidural steroid injections as well as activity modifications and ceasing smoking if you have that habit.
