In brief: Depends

It depends on the doctor and how he or she sees this condition.
Some will focus solely on various procedures like trigger point injections and medications and others may focus on more holistic treatments. It is the really great doctor who treats the whole person and addresses all aspects of the disorder. Drs who treat this order need to take the time to listen to the patient.
