Neurosugery : In situations where there was a laminectomy and continued pain with new MRI findings you need to see a neurosurgeon. The doctor will confirm by exam and maybe nerve testing that your symptoms correlate to new MRI findings and then may recommend fusion.

Epidural steroids: Cervical injection therapy including epidural steroid injections are common/successful for cervical disc disease. In particular arm pain, numbness, and tingling. Everything in medicine has risks including injections and these include headache, infection, bleeding. These are rare and just a few that are most common. Would recommend anesthesiologists who have have done pain management fellowship.

Decompression : Cervical decompression may be an option. This type of treatment involves slight relief of pressure of spine as the neck is lifted gently upward away from shoulders. Done by gravity decompression (inversion table), mechanical decompression (cervical spine home decompression), and manual decompression (pt). Consult md prior to using this modality.
