Depends on symptoms: You are describing a radiographic finding. Many times, people have disc bulges and no symptoms, in which case nothing needs to be done. If you are having neck pain or arm pain or numbness/weakness of the arms, then treatment with therapy to reduce the disc bulge and relieve pressure on the nerve roots or medication for the symptoms may be indicated.
