In brief: Absolutely

I have taken care of thousands of people who have avoided surgery with traction, but care should be taken if it makes symptoms, particularly neurological worse, which is worrisome for a more severe compression.

In brief: No

That is because bulging discs are normal findings in people, not something that creates or causes pain.
So there is no reason for any treatment in the first place.
