What is Cervical Radiculopathy?

Cervical radiculopathy is a neck condition caused by nerve compression or irritation in the cervical spine. This can occur due to various factors, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or bone degeneration. This condition can lead to symptoms like radiating pain, numbness, or weakness in the arm, hand, or shoulders, which can range from mild to severe depending on the extent of the nerve compression.

This condition can significantly impact daily life. Persistent pain can make regular activities like lifting or reaching difficult, while sensory issues can affect fine motor skills like writing or buttoning clothes. Additionally, muscle weakness can make it challenging to grip or lift heavy items, leading to decreased physical ability and productivity.

Cervical Radiculopathy FAQs

Answers to Common Questions. Click to Learn More

Cervical radiculopathy is often caused by herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, bone spurs, or spinal stenosis in the cervical spine. These conditions can put pressure on the nerve roots, leading to symptoms of radiculopathy.

Symptoms of cervical radiculopathy may include pain that radiates from the neck to the shoulder, arm, or hand, numbness or tingling in the same areas, muscle weakness in the affected arm or hand, and a decrease in reflexes. The specific symptoms experienced can vary depending on the location and severity of the nerve compression.

In some cases, mild or moderate cervical radiculopathy symptoms may improve with conservative treatments and time. However, we recommend that you come in for a consultation for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate cervical radiculopathy treatment to prevent further progression of the condition and to manage symptoms effectively.

While it may not be possible to prevent all cases of cervical radiculopathy, certain measures may help reduce the risk or minimize symptoms. These include maintaining good posture, practicing neck exercises to strengthen the muscles, avoiding excessive strain on the neck, and adopting ergonomic work and lifestyle habits.

Cervical radiculopathy and carpal tunnel syndrome are separate conditions that can cause similar symptoms in the arm and hand. Cervical radiculopathy is caused by compression or irritation of nerve roots in the neck, while carpal tunnel syndrome results from compression of the median nerve in the wrist. This is why it is important to get an accurate diagnosis to determine the underlying cause of symptoms and if cervical radiculopathy treatment is right for you.

In some cases, especially if the underlying cause is not fully addressed or if there are ongoing factors that contribute to nerve compression. Regular follow-ups with our team are important for the ongoing management of cervical radiculopathy.
