What Defines Cervical Radiculopathy?

Anatomy of Cervical Radiculopathy

An easy way to define cervical radiculopathy is to put it in a category with pinched nerves in your neck. When a nerve becomes compromised or compacted, it sends pain signals up your spinal cord to your brain. Since your spinal cord is a communication passageway to and from your brain to the rest of your central nervous system. Pain always means there’s a problem in your body.

Dr. Amr Hosny and The Spine & Rehab Group team in New York City and northern New Jersey locate the compressed nerve that’s causing the pain. Then they provide the best treatment for cervical radiculopathy to meet your needs. The treatment eliminates or reduces pain in most. If your pain persists, your spine specialist provides pain management that works.

What Are Some of the Reasons for This Condition?

Cervical radiculopathy is a result of the normal process of aging. If you’re younger, more than likely it’s the result of a neck injury. The damage to your neck often winds up causing a cervical disc herniation. The cushioning disc no longer protects your vertebrae. The nerve that exists the spinal canal at that point in your neck becomes compressed and inflamed. But this condition responds well to professional treatment.

There are other possible causes of cervical radiculopathy, but they are rare or have contributing factors. For example, some of these other causes include:

patient TESTIMONIALS ★★★★★

I have been a patient of Dr Hosny for several years now. I have had several surgeries and suffer from chronic cervical pain. Dr Hosny and his staff has been extremely supportive during this period. Dr Hosny has always taken the time during my visits to explain my condition and its origin, something that my surgeon was unable to do. Dr Hosny has never given up hope for me even during my most difficult times. I am grateful that Dr Hosny and Summer have kept me hopeful and have always taken steps to move forward and feel better so I can return to a active lifestyle again. The staff at the office is always polite and accommodating when making appointments. Kathy has been extremely supportive and informative since my very 1st appointment. When getting treatments, which can be painful at times, Dr. Hosny and Dr. 'Marty' have always made sure that I am comfortable during the procedure. Christine and the OR staff are excellent. I have worked as a nurse for 2 major hospitals for 30 years in the Morris and Essex county area and I have referred Dr Hosny to those who have inquired about pain relief and management without hesitation.

I've been suffering from severe cervical pain due to a past major surgery and most recently blew out a disk in my lower back. Dr. Hosny is up to date with the latest procedures and is available for consultation by appointment and off hours when needed. The office staff is friendly and they schedule appointments so that there is very little wait time for your appointment. The PA's who handle your routine appointments are great and very knowledgeable in the subject of pain management. Although I still have a way to go before I'm back on my feet again, I can assure you that you're in good hands with this office. Thanks!
