cervical radiofrequency ablation

anyone have this done before? my chiropractor suggested i see a doctor about seeing if i am a candidate to get this done. i have a couple bulging discs bone spurs as well as my vertebrae are compressed on the right side. i have unrelenting neck pain that goes down my shoulders as well as up my neck to my head. just wondering how well this would do if it turns out i can get this done

Re: cervical radiofrequency ablation

If they only people you are seeing are a chiropractor and someone else he suggests, I think you'd be well served to start over with an orthopedist or physiatrist. get an MRI, and take it from there.
