If your symptoms are not increasing and debilitating, do think about trying Acupuncture or Acupressure treatment which to a large extent will manage your pain and relieve you.

But be careful in approaching a qualified and registered Doctor. It is equally important to make sure the Doctor user disposable needles for Acupuncture.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Following the recovery please make sure you do the necessary exercises regularly and correct your posture so that you can prevent any further recurrences.
