In brief: Varies

Mostly because it is unclear if a disc bulge is really the cause of pain.
Back pain can be from many sources and is usually not from disc pathology. If a disc is involved, you can still exercise but may need tomodify your activities. See a pt or an osteopath for more details but remember to always start slow after an injury.
