C6 compressed nerve?

I was in a cat accident where my head was turned at impact from behind a few yrs ago. I was in a small car hit by a full size school bus. I have had intense burning pain in back bw shoulder blades for quite some time. It's getting worse. I use muscle relaxers, tens unit and tramadol. I also have pain in my left shoulder, popping, and nerve sensations tha run down my collar bone. MRIs of neck, shoulder and back showed nothing but c6 nerve compression. They are injecting that nerve tomorrow with a block. What will that be like?

Also, they aren't sure it will help the back. My chiropractor has to see me constantly to relieve pain and was the one who sent me in. What should I do? I'm so frustrated. I'm a 34 yr old female. Already had ulnar nerve release and carpal tunnel release on that side. Nerve conduction should damage at bicep and c6 involvement. Elbow and hand still hurt after surgeries!
