Cervical Radiculopathy refers to damage or irritation of nerve roots that exit the cervical spine. This is commonly referred to as a ‘pinched nerve’. At each vertebral level in the neck, a nerve exits the spinal cord and travels in a specific path to the skin and muscles of the arms. In the neck, nerves usually go to different areas in the body, from the shoulders to each finger. Moreover, these patterns are the same for all people, although there can be a slight variation. We refer to this specific map of nerves as dermatomal patterns.
