A friend's mother has a lower back problem - the discs have

A friend's mother has a lower back problem - the discs have expanded and are pressuring some nerves - and she can't walk - is bed-ridden. She has been told to seek surgery - to reduce the disc size I imagine. Are there any non-surgical solutions which might be able to help her? Such as applying traction on the back - and then some sort of external treatments - which might help the disc reduce in size and retract from where they are currently applying pressure on the nerves?
