Cervical Radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve in Neck): Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment

Brief Introduction of Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical radiculopathy, sometimes referred to as “pinched nerve,” is a disorder that causes neurological impairment by compressing and inflaming any of the neck’s cervical spine’s nerve roots. Muscle weakness, numbness, and/or radiating pain are examples of neurological dysfunction.

The word “cervical” is derived from the Latin word “cervix,” which means “neck.” When you have cervical radiculopathy, your neck, not your cervix, is where the issue is. (The short canal forming the lower end of the uterus is known as the cervix because it resembles a neck.)
