Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response

Thanks for writing to us,

I have studied your case with diligence.

In case you may need to do MRI spine or HRCT to see details of nerve damage.
I will advise to consult to orthopaedic surgeon.

You may consult physiotherapist for pain management. He may start TENS, or ultrasound which is helpful in your case.
You may need to take rest for early healing.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries. If you find this answer helpful do not forget to give rating at end of discussion.

Wishing you good health.

Take care
Dr Vaibhav
