Well I'm a chiropractor, and I might suggest giving a chiropractor or physical therapist a shot. Don't really know enough right here, but I would look for one that also uses either Graston or A.R.T (Active Release Technique). Both are soft tissue techniques that might be able to help your case. I would avoid the 6 week immobilization deal at all costs. I mean that has to be a very last resort. Joint structures begin breaking down after even short time frames of immobility, and while sometimes it's necessary (post surgical).... I would do my best to look into alternatives in your case. At the very least I would require an MRI before moving on to such a treatment option.
