In brief: Restricted activity
If there is not loss of bowel/bladder/sexual function, progressive loss of motor or sensory function, or intractable leg pain the treatment is a period of restricted activity with or without medications followed by progressive return to activity.
The return to activity may include physical therapy.

In brief: Slipped disc
Another term for slipped disc is a herniated disc due to the disc rupturing and compressing a nerve.
The treatment can be conservative using only physical therapy. In some cases surgery may be indicated to remove the herniated disc.
