NSAID Preference for Lower Back Pain?

I had a L5-S1 MicroD last September and a post-op MRI last week showed I have a bulging disc in the same place that occasionally irritates my L5 nerve. It's not bad enough for a second surgery (yea!) but I want to see if an OTC NSAID will help with the bulge and discomfort.

Is one of the OTC NSAIDs like Motrin or Alleve better for a bulging disc or is there something else I should look into instead?
