If you have cervical radiculopathy the common symptoms can include:
- Neck pain
- Pain in the shoulders, arms, or fingers
- Weakness in the shoulders, arms, or fingers
- Numbness or tingling in the shoulders, arms, or fingers
It’s important to be evaluated by a spine specialist since many conditions that affect the spine have similar symptoms of pain radiating to other parts of the body.
For example, facet joint symptoms can mimic the pain of a disc herniation.
The Spine Team at OrthoNeuro has helped thousands of patients with cervical radiculopathy return to an active and healthy lifestyle using a variety of treatment options.
