Physiotherapy is a broader term where it's practiced differently in different places. Modalities in physiotherapy are just helpful to some extent. In Physiotherapy treatment, machines play only 10% role. Most often many physios don't use them at all. There will be muscular tightness which when pressed give severe pin. This tighteness won't go with medicines. It has to be done physically more or less we call it Myofascial release, trigger point therapy etc. In addition to this a physio can also assess minute details like muscular tightness & weakness. Before going to much aggressive approaches like steroids etc I would suggest you to find good physiotherapist..plz don't expect quick results . Good luck.
