Results: The results of the present study showed that the level of improvement during intervention (one and two months) had a statistically significant difference between two groups, pharmacological and non-medicinal treatment groups (P=0.001, P=0.005), respectively. Recovery level in the group of medicinal therapy was higher than the non-medicinal treatment one. After three months from the start intervention stage, statistically significant difference was not observed between two groups (P=0.112); But in the stage of one month after the end of intervention, statistically significant difference was observed between the two groups of medicinal and non-medicinal treatment and the rate of improvement was higher in the non-medicinal al therapy (P=0.009).
