Brief Answer:
PRF treatment will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen your uploaded previous reports. Pulsed radiofrequency is a new technique to treat the nerve related pains like you are having. After the procedure the mild pain that you are having is a normal finding. This will help in reducing the pain perception by the compressed nerves and will provide pain relief.
You are getting the right treatment. If it works well then doing the same procedure on right side will help you further in reducing the pain.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
