Information about Radiculopathy
Radiculopathy, also commonly referred to as pinched nerve, refers to a set of conditions in which one or more nerves are affected and do not work properly (a neuropathy). Radiculopathy can result in pain (radicular pain), weakness, numbness, or difficulty controlling specific muscles. Pinched nerves arise when surrounding bone or tissue, such as cartilage, muscles or tendons, put pressure on the nerve and disrupt its function.
In a radiculopathy, the problem occurs at or near the root of the nerve, shortly after its exit from the spinal cord. However, the pain or other symptoms often radiate to the part of the body served by that nerve. For example, a nerve root impingement in the neck can produce pain and weakness in the forearm. Likewise, an impingement in the lower back or lumbar-sacral spine can be manifested with symptoms in the foot.
The radicular pain that results from a radiculopathy should not be confused with referred pain, which is different both in mechanism and clinical features. Polyradiculopathy refers to the condition where more than one spinal nerve root is affected.
The London Spine unit at The Harley Street Hospital we specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of Radiculopathy. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Radiculopathy. Xrays cannot often diagnose the problem and the best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Radiculopathy.
If you have been diagnosed with Radiculopathy or you have been advised to have surgery on your spine including your Back Bone then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Radiculopathy can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.
