In cervical radiculopathy, the nerve that exits the spine through a small passageway between the vertebrae and disc may be injured. This may be a result of a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, a degenerative disc, or small bony spurs. Signs of this condition include dull or sharp pain in the neck or between the shoulder blades, pain that radiates down the arm to the hand or fingers, numbness/tingling in the arm, or weakness in the arm/hand. Certain movements of the neck can intensify the pain.
After your initial prescription for physical therapy is completed, your physician and physical therapist will decide if you need to continue physical therapy or if you will be discharged to a home exercise program.
