Hi there!

Well, it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation. Management in most cases would be divided into management of the primary condition to prevent further damage and adequate pain control. When systemic medications are not advisable, alternative methods of pain control such as nerve blocks may be tried. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician and a pain management specialist for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
