Cervical radiculopathy is characterized by symptoms that include neck pain, radiating pain in the arm(s), possible numbness and tingling in the fingers, loss of strength in the arm(s), and loss of sensation in the arm(s). This happens when a structure in the cervical spine encroaches on one of the nerves exiting the spine. This can be a result of poor posture, cervical muscle weakness, bony abnormalities, or trauma.
