Radiculopathy articles

The term radiculopathy is used by medical professionals to describe traveling symptoms related to nerve compression. When a nerve root in the spinal column becomes compressed, pain can manifest in a number of ways. In addition to local pain, symptoms of muscle weakness, tingling or numbness can be experienced along the length of the affected nerve.

Typically, these symptoms can be managed nonsurgically, but occasionally a physician may recommend surgical intervention if conservative treatments have proven ineffective after weeks or months.
