No and moreover pain increases gradually from on movt and afterwards continuously even on rest and gradual onset of stiffness and it can be very troublesome as it leads to complete Joint Stiffness overtime so adequate Orthopaedic intervention and regular physiotherapy is must and gold standard treatment of choice
