Radicular Pain

Radicular pain is the manifestation of pressure or damage to nerve roots. This pain often radiates down the path of the nerve. The course of travel is determined by the location in the spine where the nerve enters the spinal canal. Quite often, radicular pain is described as sharp or "jabbing" pain that is associated with specific positions or activities.

Radicular pain may be experienced along with motor (or muscle) weakness that is often associated with nerve root compression. When muscle weakness, tingling, and pain are noted, it's important to obtain an accurate medical diagnosis right away. Radicular pain as a result of nerve root compression may be due to an injury, cancer, osteoarthritis, or other disease processes.

Procedure for Radicular Pain Relief
Initial treatment usually consists of pain management such as anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, or other non-invasive efforts. Diagnostic imaging such as an MRI or CT scan is necessary to determine the precise area and extent of nerve involvement. If surgery is the recommendation for intervention, The Bonati Procedures are an alternative to the old-fashioned open procedures for back surgeries.

Using the latest endoscopic and arthroscopic laser equipment, the surgeons at The Bonati Institute perform radicular pain relief procedures on an outpatient basis. The recovery time is much briefer than with traditional surgery.
