Cervical Radiculopathy - When angry nerves in the neck give us neck pain, arm pain, and weak tingly fingers!

Cervical Radiculopathy is a neck and arm condition that happens when the nerves coming out of the neck become irritated, often causing neck pain that can spread down into the shoulders, middle back, arm, hands, and fingers. Some people even get pins and needles, numbness, and weakness in their hands and can start dropping things! Managing this condition takes time, and if done well, can prevent the need for any surgery.

Stretching your neck not working anymore?

Whilst stretching the neck can help temporarily, many people are unaware that strengthening the muscles of the neck and shoulder (with bands, weights, and even head stands) can actually help reduce neck pain and stop it from coming back.
