Thanks for posting your query.

Cortisone injection will definitely relieve the pain due to neck radiation. It is quite good for moderate to severe pain.

You can go ahead with this treatment.

Hope I have answered your query.

I will be available for your follow up queries.

Wishing your wife and you a good health.
