What is radiculopathy?

Cervical radiculopathy occurs when a nerve in your neck gets pinched from daily repetitive movements or trauma. It’s a common condition that can strike anyone but occurs more frequently in men and women who are 50 or older.

A skilled therapist works with you to develop a custom treatment plan to decrease pain, restore range of motion, and increase overall function.
