Cervical radiculopathy refers to the symptoms associated with damage or irritation to the cervical nerves. These symptoms can include pain and discomfort within the chest area, as well as the upper extremities. Other symptoms may include sensory deficits and motor difficulties. There are a variety of causes for cervical radiculopathy; however, a number of techniques are available to confirm the presence of neurologic compression within the cervical area.
Outcomes for patients with cervical radiculopathy are good. Treatment recommendations can range from immobilization to steroid injections. Many of the treatments available for the neurological pain associated with cervical radiculopathy are highly effective in providing symptom relief. Patients are encouraged to speak with their physician about these treatments, along with their associated risks and benefits.
