Radiculopathy


 

This diagnosis can also be referred to as Radiculitis or Radicular Pain. It can be pain, numbness, tingling and/or weakness that can travel from one area to another. The reason for this is that is because every level of our spine has a nerve associated with it. If any part of the nerve is pinched, compromised or irritated; pain, numbness, tingling or weakness can result.

Physical therapy can help to determine the cause of the radicular pain. Once this is discovered, a treatment plan can be developed to help relieve the pain.

Activities that can cause or contribute to radicular pain include but are not limited to the following:

  • Poor posture
  • Tight muscles
  • Joint inflammation
  • Joint misalignment
  • Nerve root entrapment
  • Nerve inflammation
  • Prolonged sitting and/or standing
  • Golfing
  • Heaving or repetitive lifting
