I am a 40 year old firefighter and have been dealing with cervical radioculopathy for about a year. I have tried chiropractic care, spinal injections and I am currently doing physical therapy and taking Neurontin. The spinal injections worked for a few months. I have been on light duty for a better part of a year and would like to get back to full duty sooner rather than later. But the pain is keeping me from doing that. I had one surgeon say that she would do the surgery before I tried PT. Another surgeon said he wanted me to try PT first. PT was working at first but then pain has now worsened. Has anyone had any longterm success with any non surgical options? Accupunture? Chiropractic? I am wondering if I should just go ahead and get the surgery or try more non surgical options. I know that there is a chance that the pain could linger with either option. Not sure what to do.
