Cervical radiculopathy, also called a pinched nerve, refers to a pinching or inflammation of a cervical (neck) nerve from its exit point in the spine. Although most acute neck pain is a relatively common ailment that usually resolves within a couple of weeks, some neck pain can persist and may be also present in the shoulder or arm. The symptoms of cervical radiculopathy may also include pain, numbness, or weakness in different areas of the arm or hand.
