What Is Radiculopathy?

Radiculopathy is a term used to describe a variety of symptoms that are a result of a pinched nerve root within the spinal cord, which can be brought on by disc herniations, stenosis, and other conditions. Symptoms of radiculopathy include:

  • Numbness
  • Pain
  • Weakness
  • Tingling sensation in the afflicted area

Types of Radiculopathy

Radiculopathy can occur anywhere along the spine, and the type of radiculopathy is classified depending on the spinal location. The types of this condition include:

Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical radiculopathy specifies a nerve compression in the cervical area of the spine or the neck. This area of your spine controls the movement of your arms and hands.

Lumbar Radiculopathy

If your symptoms present from the low back, you have lumbar radiculopathy, also known as sciatica. The lower back is where we find most cases of radiculopathy.

Thoracic Radiculopathy

If you’re experiencing any symptoms in your upper back, then it’s likely you have thoracic radiculopathy.


How We Treat Radiculopathy

Regardless of which kind of radiculopathy you’ve been diagnosed with, Bergen Pain Management offers an array of surgical and minimally invasive treatments. Some instances of radiculopathy might only require minimally invasive lumbar decompression (MILD), while more severe cases may require surgical treatments. We also offer a host of interventional spinal procedures, which may include epidural steroid injections or spine fusion procedures.
