Radiculopathy is a condition that occurs when a nerve root in or near the spinal column is compressed due to injury or age-related wear and tear.
The resulting pain radiating from the affected nerve can be felt in various regions of the body, depending on the location along the spine where the compression occurs. Nerve roots are located within the spinal column and extend throughout the body, so radiculopathy-related pain can affect the neck, back, arms, or legs.
If you’re experiencing radiating back pain, it’s important to consult with a specialist who will diagnose the cause and provide a personalized treatment plan to help alleviate your symptoms.
Radiculopathy can cause pain in your back, arms, legs and neck depending on where the affected nerve is.
Radiculopathy can cause sharp, shooting pain, numbness or tingling, muscle weakness, loss of reflexes, and difficulty with fine motor movements.
Radiculopathy can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender. However, it is more common in people over the age of 50 and in those who have a history of spinal injuries or conditions.
