In brief: No

Conservative care will help manage this problem but will not "fix" it.

In brief: Hard to say

Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine.
The problem is that many alternative practices, Chiro etc do not stand up to scientific scrutiny and cannot be shown to work. They will take your money though and prob recommend repeat visits. Still, you will know quickly if it doesn't work. If no result -- stop going
