I am new here, my English isn't that great I just hope it crosses my point.

About a year ago, I was working out at the gym trying to get my leg work-outs, I didn't know the correct form of squats,
I did my squats anyway. After I dropped the weights I started feeling burning pain in the middle of my back I knew there was something wrong but I continued my work-out normally and ignored the pain. For 4 weeks I have had been feeling this pain but I hadn't had it checked out, and the pain started to lessen by the second month but my hamstrings and lower back muscle feel so tight and stiff especially when I wake up in the morning. So I went to the doctor and he asked me to do an MRI. The MRI quoted "MILD L5/S1 CENTRAL POSTERIOR DISC BULGE CAUSING MINIMAL THECAL COMPRESSION."

What does this mean ? And what are the best treatments ?

Should I be worried this might turn into paralysis when I am older, I am 23 years old and still have plans for my future, I don't want to be unable to do them, so I am really worried.

Best Regards,
The Slippery one
