Hello, Cervical radiculopathy is the damage or disturbance of nerve function that results if one of the nerve roots near the cervical vertebrae is compressed. Cervical radiculopathy may be treated with a combination of pain medications . Physical therapy might include gentle cervical traction and mobilization, exercises, and other modalities to reduce pain. .If all these doesn't work surgery can be done. Surgery is advised based on severity of symptoms ,you better take second opinion.
