A cervical radiculopathy is compression or irritation of a nerve as it leaves the spinal cord in the neck. Typically the compression is due to a herniated disc or cervical degenerative (arthritic) changes. Pain can occur in the neck or scapular (shoulder blade) region. The symptoms of pain and numbness typically travel down the arm into the forearm and hand.
