Condition of the Month – (Cervical Radiculopathy)
“Your nervous system is basically a big electrical circuit. Your spinal cord transmits all of the electrical nerve impulses between your brain and spine. From there, individual nerves emerge from your spine then travel to supply sensation and movement to specific areas of your shoulders, arms and hands. This allows you to move and feel sensations like touch, heat, cold and pain. Anything that interferes with this transmission can cause problems.
A condition called “Cervical Radiculopathy” means that one or more of the nerves emerging from your neck has become irritated or possibly pinched. This often results in pain numbness or tingling in the specific area of your arm that is supplied by the irritated nerve. Symptoms may vary from a dull ache to a constant severe sharp shooting pain, and are likely aggravated by certain positions or movements.
