Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical-Radiculopathy

Tingling, numbness or pains down the arm? A space-occupying lesion in the form of a disc bulge, spondylosis or degeneration commonly causes cervical radiculopathy.  Irritation to the nerve root often results in radicular symptoms ie pain, numbness, weakness, tingling feelings down the shoulder and arm. Although degenerative changes are unfixable, the process can be slowed down and symptom can be treated.  Manual therapy and exercises are found to benefit the condition for pain, function and range of motion. Manipulation in particular has found to provide instant short-term relief in pain and function. The NASS guidelines stated, “that no studies adequately address the role of pharmacologic treatment in the management of cervical radiculopathy from degenerative diseases”, however medication for neck, back and neuropathic pain may be helpful for people with cervical radiculopathy. So with that said come see your Chiropractor if your having any of these symptoms for a professional assessment!
