Thoracic/Lumbar Radiculopathy

Effective Treatment to
Ease the Symptoms of
Nerve Damage

Thoracic/Lumbar Radiculopathy

Thoracic or lumbar radiculopathy is a common mononeuropathy (single nerve damage) that occurs more often in people with type 2 diabetes. The condition may cause abdominal pain of variable duration. A prominent symptom is pain over the thorax or abdomen. As a leading multi-specialty center based in Brooklyn, NY, HealthQuest offers customized treatment for thoracic or lumbar radiculopathy that can improve the symptoms and help manage the pain associated with the condition, thus optimizing the patient’s physical potential as well as health.

The disorder is also characterized by sensory loss, and abdominal and thoracic muscle weakness in patients with diabetes. As these symptoms can be confused with cardiac disease or a gall bladder attack, an accurate diagnosis is crucial. At our Brooklyn healthcare center, we use advanced diagnostic modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), CT-scan of the abdomen and electromyography (EMG) to determine the root cause of pain or discomfort.

Lumbar Radiculopathy Treatment

Based on this analysis and a physical examination performed by our skilled neurologist, physical therapist or pain management specialist, we create a treatment plan that is focused on the patient’s quick recovery. At HealthQuest, we treat the root cause of the condition and restore the nerve root to normal function.

Our safe and effective strategies to help patients manage pain are as follows.

  • Pain medications
    • NSAIDs
    • Epidural steroid injections
    • Muscle relaxants
    • Antidepressant drugs
  • Chiropractic care
