What Is Cervical Radiculopathy?

Cervical radiculopathy is a condition that is caused by damage, irritation or compression of the nerve roots near the cervical vertebrae. This type of damage can happen from issues such as degenerative arthritis, or other injuries that can affect the nerve roots. The symptoms of cervical radiculopathy are pain that goes through the shoulders, arms, or neck. There also may be tingling, weakness, or numbness in the hands or fingers and many times lack of coordination or impairment of motor function can happen.
