Surgery/nerve stim: Your problem may fall into a surgically managed category and then you may get it fixed that way if you are wiling to go for surgery. It would be advisable, though, to give physical therapy a chance to work on the nerve, since the outcome of surgery may not be 100% predictable. Also, nerve stimulation, tens unit, may turn out helpful for some patients, but if there is treatable problem treat it 1st.

Are you sure?: Are you sure it is nerve damage? You can certainly do home exercises.
