Cervical Radiculopathy

What is Cervical Radiculopathy?

Cervical Radiculopathy is a term used to describe the pain that originates in the neck but radiates into the shoulders, arms or fingers.  This condition is not a diagnosis but a symptom of an underlying condition that is compressing a nerve in the cervical spine. When the nerve is compressed pain signals travel from the nerve root in the spine into the extremities.  

Common conditions that cause Cervical Radiculopathy include: 

  • Herniated discs 
  • Spinal Stenosis 
  • Degenerative Disc Disease 
  • Bone spurs in the spine

If you have Cervical Radiculopathy the common symptoms can include:

  • Neck pain
  • Pain in the shoulders, arms or fingers
  • Weakness in the shoulders, arms or fingers
  • Numbness or tingling in the shoulders, arms or fingers

The Spine Team at OSS Health has helped thousands of patients with Cervical Radiculopathy return to an active and healthy lifestyle using a variety of treatment options.
