Thanks for writing to HCM

Treatment in your case are both surgical and conservative.
Since you don't want surgical intervention ,physiotherapy can be tried first. Ultrasound therapy and trans cutaneous electric nerve stimulation can be given first in acute pain. Exercises can be follow that. In long term, result of physiotherapy and surgery are the same.
If pain is severe and persistent, surgery is the choice.
Now a days, for pain management, ozone ablation and radiofrequency ablation are also done.

Take Care
