Answer

Cervical nerve blocks have been reported to be unhelpful, [9] but cervical spine manipulation is effective in some patients. [1, 25] Cutaneous field stimulation has also been used. In one study, patients receiving 20 minutes of this treatment to affected areas once daily reported significant symptomatic improvement after 5 weeks. [40]
