Couple of months back I felt some winging of scapula on RIGHT side and did a Nerve conduction test which suggested Long Thoracic neuropathy. I also saw brachial plexus surgeon who straightway told to do decompression surgery. Currently I have stopped working my torso. I have attached some images. I just wanted to know the severity of my problem. In India we do not have any soft tissue management/manipulation techniques such as ART.
I wanted to know from some experienced people out there about the natural recovery of long thoracic neuropathy, whether to opt for surgery immediately, till how long should I wait before I opt for surgery etc…
I read a couple of sports medicine references which suggest that the nerve does heal on its own and may take from 6 months to a full year…
Please let me know your views.
Thanks for taking time to read.
