Can’t lose weight : There is NO scientific evidence that body wraps have any effect other than possibly some topical skin effect. They cannot “detoxify” you. You have a liver and kidney they perform those functions. If you like the way a wrap makes you feel and you can afford it then it’s fine. But if you expect any permanent effects such as weight loss you will be disappointed

Physician assistant : Physician assistant - certified is the obvious answer. But the wording of the question is unclear.

Usually not treated: Osteochondromas are benign growths near a bone's growth plate. They can actively grow while you are growing, and stop when your bones stop growing. If large enough they can rub on muscles and/or tendons, or be prominent. If they cause discomfort, they can be removed.
