A disc herniation at C7-T1 compresses the C8 nerve. This nerve supplies the hand and is one of the most persnickety nerves to recover from a compression without surgery. I am happy to hear that your strength is improving but I generally operate on the C8 nerve more quickly that the others due to the poorer potential recovery of this nerve.
