If your neck pain isn’t responding to less invasive therapies, you might benefit from:
Cervical epidural steroid injections
Epidural steroid injections in the cervical spine relieve pain in your neck, shoulders, and arms that develops when you have a pinched nerve. The medication in the injection consists of a powerful anti-inflammatory such as cortisone and a local anesthetic that helps reduce tissue inflammation and swelling.
Cervical facet injection
Facet joints are the small links between each vertebra in your spine. Like other joints, they can suffer from arthritis and other degenerative changes that cause inflammation. Cervical facet injections contain a local anesthetic, which numbs the pain temporarily, and a long-acting steroid to reduce inflammation.
Cervical radiofrequency ablation
In this minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Verma uses heat from radiofrequency energy to target the nerves sending pain signals from your neck to your brain.
A spinal cord stimulator implant might be necessary to reduce your neck pain.
