Cervical Radiculopathy – Causes

January 17, 2022


Cervical radiculopathy can be caused by a variety of factors that can put pressure on one of the nerves of the cervical spine or irritate the nerves in the cervical spine. One of the most common causes is cervical foraminal stenosis, meaning a tightening of the exit zone of the nerve as it’s trying to leave the spine, which can be caused by disc degeneration or just general arthritic processes of the joints of the spine. Cervical radiculopathy can also be caused by a disc herniation in the cervical spine that puts pressure on the nerve as it’s trying to leave and it irritates the nerve.
