Radiculopathy

Radiculopathy is the medical term for the pain, numbness, or tingling that occurs when nerves coming from the spinal cord get pinched or damaged. Radiculopathy can affect different parts of the body, depending on which nerve or group of nerves is affected. People sometimes refer to radiculopathy as having a “pinched nerve.”

Here are 2 common examples of radiculopathy:

  • Cervical radiculopathy – People with this type of radiculopathy have pain, numbness, or tingling down 1 or both arms. The condition happens when 1 or more of the nerves that go from the spine to the arm get pinched or damaged.
  • Lumbosacral radiculopathy – People with this type of radiculopathy have pain, numbness, or tingling in the buttocks or down the leg. The condition happens when 1 or more of the nerves that go from the spine to the foot and leg get pinched or damaged. (People sometimes refer to the symptoms of this type of radiculopathy as “sciatica.”)
