Re: does burning the nerves help soft tissue pain

For me, whenever I have nerve pain in the neck my body reacts by the muscles tightening, etc. So if offered some type of ablation of the nerves in the neck I'd be willing to try it. I did have an RFA of my SI joint and it worked well for about 9-10 months and I'm thinking of doing it again.
