In brief: Probably not
Manipulation under anesthesia is good for frozen shoulder, knee joints or hip joints that have reduced mobility.
Generally not done for spine issues.

In brief: Jury is out
The use of manipulation under anesthesia is done by chiropractors.
The scientific utility of this has not been proven by independent studies. I wold make sure that the MRI or ct used to make tis decision reviewed by a physician before proceeding.

In brief: MUA
Mua is done by chiropractors.
Make sure that a full evaluation is done by an md with a revies of the MRI before you think of an mua.
