Prolotherapy for sciatica

Hi,

The Xray and the MRI both show mild posterior bulging at L5-S1 disc. Everything else look normal. Occasionally the pain will shoot down my leg but most of the time it's burning buttock and when I lay down on either side the burning is also in the upper leg that I lay on. I survive the nights with O24. I have been to chiropractor but no improvement. Also did exercises base on a book but they only helped partially and for short time.
Judging by the pain I need to do something but not sure what. Should I consider Prolotherapy or is it too 'heavy' for a mild bulging? my insurance will cover about a quarter of the expense.

Will appreciate any input and guidance you can give me.
Thanks
