So I've been seeing a new doctor because he has been really focusing on helping me without just pills and it has been working. I just had a facet block which provided a LOT of relief until an unfortunate accidental whiplash that kinda backtracked my progress during the healing process, very upsetting.
I'm trying not to focus on that and he is also moving forward since I got such relief from the facet block for a good week before the whiplash he wants to do Radio Frequency. I read online that it shocks (or burns?) the nerves to stop then sending pain signals? C5-C6 DDD maybe thats what I need but it also sounds permanent and dangerous.
Is this dangerous? It sounds like it could be the right thing to do in my case, not having relief for 5 years, but I am worried about any potential dangers and I was wondering what the Spine Health community would think about this situation.
