Causes of Radiculopathy
Radiculopathy, commonly referred to as a pinched nerve, is caused by damaged tissue around the nerve roots where nerves come off of the spinal column. Often this damage happens when there is less space for the nerve roots caused by the tissues, bone or vertebrae changing in size. This can be a result of stenosis, bone spurs, disc herniation, or various other issues. Sometimes these conditions are merely a side effect of age, but other times a direct injury from a sport, car accident, or slip and fall can lead to these issues.
Symptoms of Radiculopathy
While it is useful to understand the cause of radiculopathy, often clients realize they have the condition because of the devastating side effects. Symptoms vary based on the location on the injury, which is why it is so important to see Bethesda Radiculopathy Chiropractor for a diagnosis, but you might have radiculopathy if you have the following issues:
- Acute pain in your neck, back, legs, or shoulders. Sometimes this pain gets worse with sudden movement such as sneezing, coughing, or quickly turning.
- Pain and numbness flowing from the back to the front of your body or located anywhere in your back or spinal region.
- Loss or lessening of reflexes in extremities such as arms or legs.
- Atypical feelings in your arms, legs, or parts of your skin. Sometimes people describe these feelings as numbness or pins and needles.
Some people suffering from Radiculopathy experience these symptoms constantly, while others have periods of normalcy followed by flare ups. Whether you experience these symptoms on a daily basis or every now and then, these symptoms are likely not normal and could be signs that you would benefit from a consultation with Dr. Good.
