Radiculopathy is often a sharp, radiating pain that shoots from the neck into the arm or from the back down the leg, and includes a loss of feeling, tingling or “pins & needles” sensations, or weakness. These symptoms of radiculopathy are often due to a pinched nerve and impact the cervical, thoracic and lumbar areas of the back.
Nerves run throughout the body, namely down the spine and into each of our limbs. Taking this into account, there is much shared space in the spine through which the nerves travel via tiny canals. When functioning properly and without injury, the spine is a safe and protected environment for the nerves to reside. Unfortunately, the presence of a degenerative spine condition such as a disc herniation or spondylolisthesis can severely limit the space available for the nerve to travel uninhibited, which can result in radicular symptoms such as radiating pain that shoots down arms and legs.
