Cervical Radiculopathy

Home 9 Cervical Radiculopathy

Do you have a pinching pain in your neck? The cause of this aggravation could be a herniated disc or a narrowing of the foramen (the space where nerves exit the spine). When these conditions compress the cervical nerves branching out from the spinal cord, you may have pain in your neck and all the way down to your hands and fingers — a condition known as “radiculopathy.”

Cervical Radiculopathy occurs when a nerve root in the cervical spine becomes damaged. The damage can be due to many things, such as spinal deterioration or an injury. People between the ages of 40 and 50 are most likely to suffer from this condition. In fact, 83 out of 100,000 people are reported to suffer from radiculopathy frequently.

Cervical Radiculopathy can be quite “the pain in the neck.” With physical therapy treatment, you can overcome symptoms associated with this condition and many more!

If you think you may be dealing with cervical radiculopathy, our skilled therapists at Euro-Therapies are here for you. Give Shanti Physical Therapy a call to schedule a consultation.

How Can Physical Therapy Help Recover From Cervical Radiculopathy?

Cervical Radiculopathy is a common condition seen in physical therapy clinics and may be challenging to treat. Determining the right treatment for patients with disc protrusions and radiculopathy can be challenging at times. For patients with neck pain, physical therapy is a proven conservative treatment that should be tried first. Our expert physical therapists at Shanti Physical Therapy specialize in cervical radiculopathy treatments. Through proven methods, we help patients quickly relieve pain and restore their movement.

For patients suffering with pain and cervical radiculopathy, it is important to know the exact source and location of the symptoms. This is crucial for an adequate diagnosis of the location of the disc bulge or herniation. A detailed physical examination helps determine the area of involvement and the irritated nerve root. Much can be discovered from movement analysis, symptomology and palpation, through an extensive physical therapy evaluation.

It is important for your patients to begin physical therapy right away to resolve symptoms as quickly as possible. Hands-on therapy helps to increase mobility of tight muscles and tissues that can induce pressure on the disc. Pain reduction is best achieved with the patient moving, which has been demonstrated more effective than bed rest or immobilization. Specific exercises need to be performed which focus on the gradual strengthening of supporting muscles and tissues, relieving pressure on affected nerve roots.
