Cervical Radiculopathy Symptoms

Cervical radiculopathy is a painful condition caused by abnormal pressure on the nerves that originate in the upper part of the spinal column and radiate to the body's upper extremities. Often, radiculopathy can indicate the presence of a herniated disc or foraminal narrowing due to bone spurs (osteophytes) growing from the spine.

Symptoms for cervical radiculopathy differ according to which part of the spine is affected. However, pain tends to be very sharp and arises when the body assumes a particular position or engages in a certain activity. In addition to pain, symptoms of numbness, tingling and muscle weakness are also commonly associated with the condition.

Cervical Radiculopathy Symptoms and Treatment Options
Cervical radiculopathy can manifest itself with chronic symptoms at intermittent intervals or, in the case of a herniated disc, in sudden and sharp pain. Parts of the upper body most commonly affected are the shoulder, the upper arm, the deltoids, the biceps, the triceps, and the hand. If the condition does not respond to more conservative forms of therapy, such as medication and physical therapy, surgery may be indicated.
