2 doctors agree

In brief: Not always safe

May have risk of spinal cord injury, and indication is very specific, clearcut disc compression of nerve root just prior to exiting spinal canal.
Unlikely to be of any benefit for your described condition, and risk may outweigh benefit. Get second opinion.
