Hello, disc bulge does resolve after bed rest and few excersises, but depending upon the stage and amount of disc bulge - needs operative procedures. There are interventional procedures with less invasive done for the above conditions.
General suggestions i can give, reduce physical stress, weight bearing, and try to lie and sleep on the flat surfaces. Thank you.
