Broad based central and paracentral S1, non surgical options?

I have the above compressing the s1 nerve posteriorly and its moderately displacing the left s1 nerve root.

I essentially have pain in my legs and needle like stabbing pains in my feet. 90% in the right.

I am unable to afford shots or surgery.

Ive had issues with this disc on and off for 20 years.

Is there anyway to manipulate this disc to reabsorb without surgery?

Im willing to try any exercise.

I do planks, bridges, reverse leg raises etc.

Im sick of the opiates and I want my job back and dream of being able to run (which I know is unlikely, but one can dream).

I also have 2 tears in the discs immediately above, but they havnt bulged for ages.

    I would rather deleting my post than messing it up.

    I just wanted to inform that there are conservative treatments that definitely can help. Unfortunately not allowed to post success procedures that helped for similar conditions in here. Probably that's why we rarely see success stories on these forums.
