In brief: Surgery
Surgical revision with either a disc replacement or a fusion continue to be the best fix for a bulging vertebral disc.

In brief: Bulging discs
Bulging discs typically resorb over time.
Treatment varies based on the severity of pain and whether you have any neurologic deficit. Treatment can consist of physical therapy and medications or possibly epidural steroid injections or discectomy for very severe pain refractory to conservative measures.

In brief: Severity and symptom
You can't imagine how many people are walking around with bulging discs and no symptoms, to severe numbness and loss of function.
So from nothing to exercises, meds and surgery.
