There are three main nonsurgical modalities to ablate nervous system elements. These involve the use of extreme cold (cryoablation), high temperature radiofrequency and chemical neurolysis, such as alcohol or phenol.
Many pain generators are located in the cervical spine, including the intervertebral discs, facet joints, ligaments, muscles, and nerve roots. The facet joints have been found to be a source of neck pain, and the diagnosis of cervical facet syndrome.
Nonsurgical treatments focus on eccentric strengthening with the possible addition of leukocyte-poor PRP, which may have the potential to hasten recovery and decrease re-rupture.
