    Answered . There is no way to answer that question at this point in time. Many factors go into the answer, such as: how long will your treatment last?

    Answered . I agree with my colleagues. I only add that to be credible, your care MUST be overseen by a medical doctor, preferably an orthopaedist. Good luck.
