Pinched Nerve Treatment (Cervical Radiculopathy)

Our team of award-winning, Board Certified orthopaedic physicians are committed to excellence in orthopaedic spine care, treating spine, neck and back injuries. A common spine and neck ailment is what’s known as a pinched nerve (or medically known as cervical radiculopathy). A pinched nerve can cause some people neck pain that may radiate into the shoulder and arm. This type of neck pain is often caused by an injury near the root of a spinal nerve.

Causes of Pinched Nerves

As the disks in the vertebrae age, they lose height and begin to bulge, lose water content and become stiffer. As the disks lose height, the vertebrae move closer together. The body responds to this as a possible weak area and forms a bone, known as a spur to strengthen it. Bone spurs can sometimes pinch the nerve root, which causes the associated neck discomfort.

Seek Treatment
