Physiotherapy Can Help Cervical Nerve Root Neck Pain

Cervical radiculopathy is a pain syndrome involving one of the cervical nerve roots, with the C7 root (60%) and the C6 root (25%) being the most commonly involved. In younger persons this is due a direct injury which compromises the nerve exit or due to an acute disc prolapse. In older age groups this syndrome can also occur, but in this case is due to narrowing of the nerve exit by arthritic joints and ligament enlargement, disc bulging and bony outgrowths. Cervical nerve root pain referred to physiotherapists for the management of neck pain and arm pain.

The regular lifting of weights over 12 kilograms (25 pounds), operating or driving machinery which vibrates and cigarette smoking are all risk factors for cervical radiculopathy. This kind of neck and arm pain is much less common than the lumbar syndrome of back and leg pain (sciatica). The discs between the cervical vertebrae allow loads to be transmitted down the spine and damp down unwanted shocks. The joint, disc, bone and ligamentous structures form exit spaces for the nerves on the sides of the vertebrae, with up to a third of their space taken up by the nerve. This space can be compromised if degenerative changes occur nearby, leading to nerve compression symptoms.

Athletes are constantly at risk for injuries with the knee joint being the most likely to be injured. Orthopedic surgeons treat these types of sports injuries more than any other parts of the body. Knees are involved in most physical activities and are used in almost every sport, and when an injury occurs, proper treatment is critical in providing a fast and effective recovery.

An orthopedic surgeon understand athletes desires to return to their sport as quickly as possible after an injury. With this understanding, many sports orthopedic surgeons have developed programs that enable their patients to return to activities safely and as fast as possible after knee injuries, including those who require knee surgery. Programs consist of postoperative exercise devices and rehabilitation, which is often taught and overseen by a certified trainer. When a patient with a sport related knee injury is initially seen by an orthopedic surgeon, the surgeon will oftentimes start the patient immediately on a program to prevent the knee from becoming immobile due to swelling and pain. Programs often consist of special devices that apply cold and compression to the knee as well as range of motion exercises, flexibility and strengthening exercise and teaching how to walk properly to eliminate any need for crutches. Programs can last anywhere between four weeks to six weeks. This often helps prevent surgery while allowing for safe and effective recovery in a much shorter period than if surgery is done. Athletes who do need surgery are started on a program immediately after surgery using aggressive exercise and rehabilitation techniques to provide rapid recovery. Read more…
