What is radiculopathy, and how is it treated?
Radiculopathy occurs when one or more nerves functions incorrectly, resulting in pain, weakness, numbness, or difficulty controlling certain muscles. The problem originates from a nerve root along the spine, and the resulting pain and other symptoms frequently extend to the body part that nerve serves.
Nerves affected by radiculopathy can be inflamed, pinched, or working poorly due to low blood flow. Pinched nerves can be caused by excessive pressure in several areas, including the areas surrounding bones, muscle, tendons, and cartilage.
All radiculopathy treatments target the underlying causes to restore normal nerve function. Doctors routinely try conservative approaches, such as physical therapy, relaxation, and medication first. Some research also exists to support the chiropractic solution of spinal manipulation.
WakeMed Orthopaedic Surgeons offer minimally invasive solutions to trust Radiculopathy.Learn more about these procedures.
