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.

For how many days you have the pain? Disc bulge pinching the nerves can be treated by interventional pain management. Need to see the MRI for precise treatment
