The bulging of L4/5 intervertebral disc
which causes pain over the back and in nerves can be cured by surgery. A spinal surgeon sees the scan and the patient and takes a decision regarding need for operation. Another alternative used is strict bedrest
for 10-14 days, which also has been known to relieve disc bulge and pain. There are physical therapy
measures which can build up back muscles and prevent recurrence of such problem.
