Has anyone had this? For what symptoms was it used for? Can it work for arm/nerve pain as well as neck pain down to C7? Need to find out more. Have the implant in my lower back and it's great.

No answers here, but talked to Medtronics who put in my implant for the lower extremities, and they said definitely can be used for upper cervical, problem is to get the doctor to listen. The 6th radiofrequency did not work, same as the 5th time. I'm giving him one more chance, then will have to switch doctors, or perhaps insurance as I need relief and nothing he has done has helped.
