Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult for me to comment specifically on the situation. Continued symptoms could result from associated inflammation, further degeneration, neural compression, muscle spasm etc. I would suggest seeking a review with your treating doctor for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
