Radiculopathy Overview

Learn about the AccuraScope Procedure
Cervical radiculopathy describes a pinched nerve that occurs when various types of tissue—including bones, muscles, cartilage or tendons—interfere with the normal pathways that carry nerves throughout the body. In the case of cervical radiculopathy, interference happens at or near the roots of nerves that branch from the upper portion of the spinal cord.

Symptoms often include pain that radiates from the affected nerve and down the arm, muscle weakness and numbness or tingling. Depending on the location of the pinched nerve, these symptoms may be felt in the shoulder area, the bicep or tricep muscles in the arm, and down into the thumb or middle finger.
