Radicular Pain


Radicular pain, also known as radiculopathy, occurs when a nerve root in the spine becomes compressed or irritated. This type of pain typically radiates from the spine to other areas of the body, such as the arms or legs, following the path of the affected nerve. Common causes of radicular pain include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease. It is crucial to identify the underlying cause of the pain in order to develop an appropriate treatment plan. Treatment options for radicular pain may include conservative measures, such as medication, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes, as well as more invasive interventions, like epidural steroid injections or surgery in severe cases.
