SBD.....Chronic?

Hi All! My betta got swim bladder disease about a month ago ( at least I think that's what it was ). He was eating normally, but kept rolling to one side. I fasted him for a few days and treated him with Epsom salts. He seemed to make a nice recovery. Now he is back to floating on one side.

Is swim bladder disease a chronic condition that he'll get over and over again?

Thanks!!
