hello sir, there is no nerve implant so far, best i can tell you is try mirrior therapy, one side which is working face it towards mirror and think that other side is working, it helps the nerve firing... lot of research is been done on mirrior therapy and has amazing results in pain and movement therapy... and also do massage on affected side helps gain blood circulation... results wont be instant but yes if you practice hard result will start ticking in slowly
