Overview

Radiculopathy is not a specific condition, but rather a description of a problem in which one or more nerves are affected and do not work properly (a neuropathy). The emphasis is on the nerve root ("radix" = "root"). This can result in pain (radicular pain), weakness, numbness, or difficulty controlling specific muscles.

Causes

The nerve or nerves may be inflamed, "pinched," lack blood flow, or may be affected by a disease that is destroying it in part or totally.

Polyradiculopathy

Polyradiculopathy is the name of the term for describing more than one spinal nerve roots are affected.
