In brief: Yes
There are definite case reports of patients who have medium sized disc bulges that have healed over time without surgery and with good physical therapy including spinal decompression tables.

I disagree with the above statement. The only peer reviewed case report is in the following article "Spine (Phila Pa 1976). 1995 Nov 15;20(22):2467-9." That describes a complication of spinal decompression.
