Hi,

Permanent nerve damage can be diagnosed by nerve conduction studies, CT and MRI studies. For the pain, different kinds of pain relievers can be used, as well as some drugs which are used in the treatment of depression or seizures.

For the inability of movement that you currently have, physical therapy will help to some extent.

Do come back with other queries that you have.

Hi,

Yes physical therapy will help you to some extent in regaining the functioning of the right arm.

Thanks
