Hi. To get things right you can't comment on disc prolapse on Xray. Do you get any tingling sensations or just pain. If prolonged then get mri done after consulting an orthopedic surgeon.

Hello friend The answer to your question is no. Disc can never go back to its original position with rest or exercise. Rest helps in reducing inflammation,relives the nerve compression to certain extent and there by pain relief. Go for MRI to get confirm about your injury or disc problem. After the picture of your back is clear solution can be found out. Please don't do any exercise without knowing the exact situation.

No ,bulged disc cannot be relocated by any means.... If you rest for some days you can avoid bulged disc pressing nerve root there by reduce symptoms.... If the prolapse is mild doctor will advice you physiotherapy, if it doesn't work and pain in severe surgery is the final option... kindly consult a neurosurgeon...you might need an MRI scan also.
