Not physio alone, as I said.It will have an unpredictable improvement, depending on how you respond, along with the medications, excercise, electronic therapies [part of the physio] etc.It might or might not completely resolve....but will be manageable.Diet, nutrition, also important.Please click a positive. Come back after that as needed [rating scale on top of the page.]
