Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical radiculopathy is a chronic pain condition treated at the Center for Pain Management. We have pain centers in Indianapolis, Greenwood and Lafayette, Indiana. Cervical Radiculopathy often comes from what people know as bulging discs, herniated discs or pinched nerves.

 Learn More About Cervical Radiculopathy

Here is a brief description of Cervical Radiculopathy. Between each spinal segment (vertebrae) there is a soft disc that allows for movement between the segments and provides shock absorption. The disc is made up of fibrous outer layers (annulus) surrounding a gel like center (nucleus pulposus). When there is weakening of the outer layers, the disc can bow out or bulge toward the nerve root as it exits the spinal canal. This is referred to as a bulging disc. When there is tearing of the annulus with progression of the nucleus toward the perimeter of the disc that is called a herniated disc. If the gel ruptures through the outer layer of the annulus, that is an extruded or ruptured disc. The radiating pain that can result from theses disc problems comes from the disc material compressing or chemically irritating the nerve root. This is called a radiculopathy. Some disc bulges and herniations do not cause any pain if the nerve root is not affected. In other cases patients experience pain coming from nerve endings within the outer layers of the disc itself. This is diagnosed as internal disc derangement.
