About Neuropathy and Radiculopathy
Neuropathy is a general term referring to nervous system issues related to the peripheral nerves that radiate out from within the spinal cord and central nervous system. Radiculopathy is a specific type of neuropathy that often affects the cervical spine.
Cervical radiculopathy involves neurological symptoms and pain related to irritated nerves in the neck and spine. The upper vertebrae of the spine supporting the neck help to protect the nerves that control the shoulders, arms, and hands. If any nerve in the cervical spine becomes compressed or inflamed, the result can be symptoms of the neck and arms, including:
- Chronic pain
- Burning or shooting sensations
- Loss of coordination
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care
The spine is comprised of 24 stacked vertebrae that protect the spinal cord and all the nerves it contains. Of all the vertebrae, the top two cervical vertebrae have the most mobility of the entire spine. Because of this, they are the most likely to become misaligned. The result can be cervical neuropathy or radiculopathy.
Upper cervical chiropractic care in Marysville specializes in radiculopathy treatment for nerve pain and irritation in the cervical area. It is a very focused branch of chiropractic that treats the top two spinal vertebrae in order to relieve neck, head, and extremity issues.
