Cervical radiculopathy may be treated in a number of ways – either conservatively, through exercise and stretching, or surgery might need to be considered if your condition is severe or worsens.
The following kinds of treatment should be considered:
• Physical therapy
• Anti-inflammatory medication
• Steroid injections
If you’re not able to find relief from your symptoms after a few weeks of treatment, Dr. Alexander might recommend surgery to help decompress the spine and relieve pressure.
You’ll need to consult with your doctor to determine which treatment options are best for you or make an appointment with Alexander Bone and Spine for a consultation.
