Management of cervical disk syndrome utilizing manipulation under anesthesia.
Although there is an abundance of material in the literature regarding manipulation under anesthesia for the lumbar spine, there is little concerning the cervical spine. This article discusses a case of traumatically induced cervical disk syndrome accompanied by degenerative disk and joint disease that resolved after a series of manipulations to the cervical spine under anesthesia. Indications for the procedure are presented as well as a description of the procedure.
