What Defines Cervical Radiculopathy?

Anatomy of Cervical Radiculopathy

An easy way to define cervical radiculopathy is to put it in a category with pinched nerves in your neck. When a nerve becomes compromised or compacted, it sends pain signals up your spinal cord to your brain. Since your spinal cord is a communication passageway to and from your brain to the rest of your central nervous system. Pain always means there’s a problem in your body.

Dr. Amr Hosny and The Spine & Rehab Group team in New York City and northern New Jersey locate the compressed nerve that’s causing the pain. Then they provide the best treatment for cervical radiculopathy to meet your needs. The treatment eliminates or reduces pain in most. If your pain persists, your spine specialist provides pain management that works.

What Are Some of the Reasons for This Condition?

Cervical radiculopathy is a result of the normal process of aging. If you’re younger, more than likely it’s the result of a neck injury. The damage to your neck often winds up causing a cervical disc herniation. The cushioning disc no longer protects your vertebrae. The nerve that exists the spinal canal at that point in your neck becomes compressed and inflamed. But this condition responds well to professional treatment.

There are other possible causes of cervical radiculopathy, but they are rare or have contributing factors. For example, some of these other causes include:

patient TESTIMONIALS ★★★★★

I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.

I've had office visits and procedures done and everyone to the front desk, to the nurses. and the doctors were just great and knowledgeable. They really got me feeling better as well. Since I starting going there my pain has improved greatly! I would recommend The Spine & Rehab Group to everyone!

Val B.

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management. Dr. Hosny, Dr. Chu, physician’s assistant Summer and the entire staff have managed to make this happen. Robin helped me many times with insurance to ensure that I got my shots in a timely manner (Hi Robin!). I’ve been going to this office for about three years and I couldn’t be more pleased!


I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.


I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.


I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.


I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.
