SUFFERING FROM RADICULOPATHY?
Champey Pain & Spine of New Jersey may be able to help.
Radiculopathy is a painful condition that occurs when the nerves in the spine become pinched or compressed. This condition is most frequently the result of an injury or degenerative condition.
WHAT IS RADICULOPATHY?
The most common symptoms of radiculopathy are pain, numbness, and tingling in the arms or legs, as well as localized pain in the neck or back. The severity and intensity of pain associated with radiculopathy varies from patient to patient and can range from dull aches to sharp and stabbing pains.
WHO CAN GET RADICULOPATHY?
Radiculopathy may be treated in a number of ways. More conservation options include exercise and stretching, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication and steroid injections. When more conservative treatments fail to provide relief, more aggressive methods, such as surgery, may be considered to help decompress the spine and relieve pressure.
