Radiculopathy Diagnosis & Treatment

Radiculopathy occurs when a nerve or nerves do not work properly, generally due to a problem in or near the nerve root. Often, symptoms occur not just at the location of the problem, but radiate to the part of the body served by that nerve.

This condition may have symptoms such as:

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Weakness
  • Difficulty controlling affected muscles

There are many types of Radiculopathy depending on the location of the nerve or nerves affected (e.g., in the lumbar, cervical, or thoracic spine).

Causes & Treatment

There are many reasons why your nerve roots may be experiencing issues, and our first job here at The Neurology Center in Houston is to get to the root of the problem. This way, we are able to treat more than just your symptoms, which results in long-term relief.

Common causes of Radiculopathy include:

  • Lack of blood flow
  • Pinched nerve
  • Inflammation
  • Excessive pressure from tendons or cartilage

With the help of our expert physicians, we can resolve the underlying cause for this painful condition and restore your nerves to their normal function. Using combined relaxation techniques, physical therapy, and—in some cases—medication, we form the correct treatment plan to fit your lifestyle and capabilities.
