The London Spine Unit specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of Radiculopathy. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Radiculopathy. 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 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.
We are based on the Prestigious Harley Street and our clinic is fully equipped to diagnose and treat Radiculopathy
More details 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). This can result in pain (radicular pain), weakness, numbness, or difficulty controlling specific muscles.
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.
