These are the symptoms that occur when a spinal nerve root becomes compressed. Nerve compression is most commonly associated with a herniated disc or spondylosis (degenerative changes in the spine) and can occur as a result of an injury or without one.
It is important to note that not all herniated discs result in nerve compression or pain. Any nerve root can be affected, but the lower cervical and lumbar spines are the most commonly affected. Because the fibers of a single spinal nerve root provide sensitivity and strength in a specific part of the body, such as an arm or leg, nerve compression causes symptoms in the area where the nerve supplies muscle strength and sensitivity.
Radiculopathy is caused by the compression of a spinal nerve root. The most common cause of compression is a herniated disc and/or degenerative changes in the spine. Radiculopathy can also be caused by spondylolisthesis (the displacement of a vertebra relative to the adjacent vertebra). Cysts, fractures, infections, and tumors are uncommon causes of nerve compression.
