MRI Results : Please analyse and advise future action

Thank you in advance for your time and guidance.

I am 35,Male. I lifted heavy weights in a rush and improperly about 6 months ago. Have had lower back pain for 3 years.

My MRI Results :

Sacralisation of L5 body is seen.
Visualised vertebrae reveal normal marrow signal intensity
Mild L4-L5 disc bulge is seen, mildly impinging the thecal sac
Rest of the disc spaces are normal and show normal signal intensity
The facet joints and ligaments flava are normal
The conus is seen at L1 level and is normal
The paravertebral soft tissues are normal

Sacralisation of L5 body is seen.
Mild L4-L5 disc bulge is seen, mildly impinging the thecal sac

Now, the doc had said, "No major damage","Does not look bad", Advised a weeks rest.The severe stiffening of back while getting up is gone.And i feel better in general. But I stlll experience sudden shooting pain sometimes. Now that i know that the pain is because of impingement of thecal sac, I am worried. Will PT help me or will worsen it ? I am worried about Disk Degeneration. How to reduce disc bulge ? How dangerous and harming is continued impingement ?

Please advise.
