26 year old with 3 herniated discs in c-spine seeking advice

I have just been diagnosed with 3 herniated discs in my cervical spine, and I'm trying to find out as much as I can about treatment options. I've tried trigger point injections, epidural steroid injections, and physical and massage therapy with no success. It seems like surgery may be my only option at this point, although I want to avoid it if at all possible. Also, everything I've read about the condition only seems to cover singular disc herniation, and I can't find anything about multiple disc herniations in the cervical spine. Can anyone tell me if I have any other options, and can anyone tell me about their experiences with multiple disc herniation?

I'd try this post on the back problems board.
