In brief: Many

Medication & therapy are the joint "first line" treatments, as they are with other nerve compression syndromes (like carpal tunnel).
However, as the disease progresses, surgical nerve decompression becomes necessary to treat the disease.

In brief: Yes

Medicines, injections, and surgery can each have a role in the treatment.
Non invasive treatments like physical therapy could be helpful too.
