The best outcomes are a result of taking time to accurately diagnose the condition properly, explain the available treatment options, and educate patients in the proper application of the various treatment methods. This includes simple measures like activity modifications and over the counter medications, more involved therapies like prescription medications and supervised physical therapy, and sometimes more involved measures like surgery to correct the underlying disorder or condition. Patients play a key role in deciding the therapy they feel most comfortable with to ensure their active participation in the recovery process.
