Hi and thanks for the query.

It really depends on the degree of impingement. However, you can avoid surgery and delay it but at the end of the day, surgery is the best and definitive solution for such a problem.

The way to delay surgery is by getting an appointment with a pain management doctor and getting a steroid shot in the problematic discs. Other than that as an adjunct, physiotherapy and massage along with anti inflammatory medication like NSAIDs, life style modification etc. should also be done.

Let me know if you have further questions.
