Depends on symptoms: The only true way to fix this problem is by surgery. Saying that however, is not the only option. It really depends on your symptoms. Simple conservative treatments should be tried first. Those include anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy and home exercises and maybe injections. If that all fails and there is still pain present then surgery would be on option.
