Cervical Radicular Pain
Cervical radicular pain is a condition in which nerve roots in the cervical spine become compressed or irritated, leading to pain that radiates down the arm. This type of pain is often described as sharp, shooting, or burning, and can be accompanied by tingling, numbness, or weakness in the affected arm.
Common causes of cervical radicular pain include herniated discs, bony spurs, and spinal stenosis. An accurate diagnosis is essential to develop an effective treatment plan, which may include medication, physical therapy, or surgery. Early intervention and proper management can help alleviate symptoms and prevent long-term complications. The pain can range from mild to severe and can affect daily activities such as lifting, typing, and driving.
Treatment options for cervical radicular pain may include physical therapy, medication, and in severe cases, surgery. Early diagnosis and treatment are important to prevent long-term nerve damage and to manage symptoms effectively.
Cervical epidural injections
Cervical epidural injections are a common procedure used to treat various conditions that cause pain in the neck, arms, and shoulders. This minimally invasive treatment involves the injection of a steroid and anaesthetic medication directly into the epidural space surrounding the spinal cord. These injections can help reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain in the affected area. Cervical epidural injections are typically performed on an outpatient basis and can provide long-lasting relief.
