In brief: What is it for

The first thing is to establish a diagnosis.
The anti-inflammatories can help, but maybe you don't need them and can improve the problemwith exercise, posture, etc. All medications have alternatives but some are better than others. With the NSAID we have to watch the stomach, the kidneys, the blood pressure. Each of these can be affected in a adverse way and you need to be monitored.
