Cervical Radiculopathy is an irritation or compression of one or more nerve roots in the cervical spine. Because these nerves travel to the shoulders, arms, and hands, an injury in the cervical spine can cause symptoms in these areas. Cervical radiculopathy may result from various problems with the bones and tissues of the cervical spinal column.
- Pain that spreads into the arm, neck, chest, upper back and/or shoulders
- Numbness or tingling in fingers or hands
- Muscle weakness, lack of coordination, or the loss of reflexes in your arms or legs
