I now wait for 2 to 4, even 6 weeks to see if this Radiofrequency of my neck produces a reduction of pain–do I receive pain relief from this procedure in which dozens of hollow needles were shoved into the cervical facet joints, and nerves bombarded, and perhaps needlessly to relieve 4-7 levels pain. It has worked in the past up to nine months. This is not a science but an art in which Dr. Lockwood practices these needles into my cervical spine. Anyone interested in this drastic procedure should call Aver Mc Kinnon Hospital, Plaza 2 Interventional Pain Clinic, and seek an appointment.
