HealthQuest, a leading multispecialty healthcare center in Brooklyn, New York, offers personalized treatment for cervical radiculopathy or pinched nerve. Radiating pain from the neck to the shoulders, arms and hands is the major symptom of this condition. You may also experience muscle weakness, numbness or a tingling sensation. This may be due to a compressed or irritated nerve at the site of the radicular collar.
Everyday activities that put excessive pressure on the nerve roots are to blame for this work-related condition. Poor working posture, repetitive bending, lifting, twisting or heavy manual labor can result in such nerve compression.
