Depending on the severity of the bulging disc, patients may be asked to endure one or two days of bed rest and avoid heavy lifting and other activities that cause back strain, or they may be prescribed specific exercises by a physical therapist, explains Laser Spine Institute. Sufferers may also be prescribed anti-inflammatory or pain medications to relieve symptoms. Patients should maintain a healthy weight and get regular exercise to strengthen core muscles for maximum back protection. If surgery is needed, minimally invasive procedures may be an option, and some may be performed on an outpatient basis.
