Depends on symptoms: Is it from a posterior approach hip replacement? Physical therapy for strengthening accessory muscles to support hip flexion and make up for glut max weakness and gait training is beneficial. The change in gait can lead to a back pain later on. If pain is your main issue, you may want to consider neuromodulator medication like Gabapentin or Pregabalin to help decrease the pain. I hope this helps!

Can nerve damage heal?

Dr. Aileen Shieu
Hand Surgery 20 years experience
Yes: If the damage does not cause the nerve to be completely cut, then healing can occur. If a nerve has been cut, it will need to be reconnected in order to grow. Nerve grows about 1 mm/day, so depending on where the injury is, it may take over a year for recovery. It is difficult after a nerve is cut to get 100% recovery, but some return of sensation can be expected after repair.

? Vit b12, Cod liver: The nervous system has a limited change to recover from nervous death or sick cells. Vitamin b 12 and fish oil, omega 3 ( oil from cod liver) have been recommended but reconstruction of nerve cells can be achieved only by stem cell transplant and ordering the brain to repair the affected area ( physical therapy).
