Cervical radiculopathy is essentially a pinched nerve that is caused by an irritated or compressed nerve root towards the end of the spinal canal. A pinched nerve impacts nerve impulse and is often associated with pain or weakening sensations.

Herniated discs, ruptured discs, and degenerative disc disease tend to be the main causes of this condition. That means older adults are more likely to be affected than younger adults or children.
