Dr. Kaixuan Liu with Atlantic Spine Center discusses Minimally Invasive...
Radiculopathy symptoms include pain that feels like a burning sensation, numbness, and tingling in the arms or legs. If the condition is left untreated and allowed to progress it is possible that further symptoms such as muscle weakness and muscular atrophy will begin to be seen. In most cases radiculopathy symptoms will begin mild and progress more as the condition worsens with time. Catching the condition early and beginning radiculopathy treatment is essential for a quick recovery.
Symptoms of radiculopathy are also dependent on which nerve is affected. For example, inflamed nerves in the neck and inflamed nerves in the back show symptoms in different parts of the body. In particular, symptoms of cervical radiculopathy are seen in the shoulders, arms, and hands; whereas if your radiculopathy affects the lower back, you will feel symptoms in the buttocks, legs, and feet.
Endoscopic spine procedures can be used to correct many of the conditions that cause chronic back pain or to repair failed previous surgeries.- Kaixuan Liu, MD, PhD President, Atlantic Spine Center Read More about Dr.Liu
