In brief: See a spine specialist
In general chiropractors have little to offer for disc extrusions.
See a spine specialist. Transforaminal epidural steroid injections can decrease the inflammation cause by the disc extrusion, however, if your strength does not improve over 6-8 weeks, i would consider surgical intervention.

In brief: Procedures
Interventional pain management is focused on using procedures such as nerve blocks to control pain.
Some docs only do that while others offer a more comprehensive approach.
