What is Radiculopathy?

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.
