Do you think cervical nucleoplasty using coblation technique is helpful in c-hnp? I received such procedure 4 weeks ago but no effect yet...

Ask questions: There are many "minimally invasive" spine procedures that sound great on paper and even have some +ve studies. B4 doing any procedure, ask how # your surgeon has done. If it's not covered by insurance ask why not- if a procedure costs less than usual surgery and has "wonderful" results, they will jump at covering it. Lastly, for hnp, these procedures should be done for arm pain, not neck pain.

Had gentle cervical manipulation by PT 3 days ago. Worried about VAD. Since it's been 3 days post, am I probably safe from worrying about that?

OK if no symptoms.: The typical pt with VAD is a young person who experiences severe occipital headache and posterior nuchal pain following a head or neck injury and subsequently develops focal neurologic signs attributable to ischemia of the brainstem or cerebellum. The focal signs may not appear until after a latent period lasting as long as 3 days, however, and delays of weeks and years have also been reported.
