      It is fairly new, and a lot more trials need to be done and researched. I have not had any patients have it yet, so I’m not sure of the outcomes. Regardless, I would encourage trying PT first, because for many patients that, accompanied with dietary changes and lifestyle modifications, resolves the issues.
