If you have cervical radiculopathy, commonly referred to as a pinched nerve in the neck, you are probably used to living with pain. Trauma or normal aging has caused a nerve in your neck to become compressed or irritated, and your pain may be accompanied by numbness and/or weakness radiating into the shoulders and arms. 

The right medical care can provide relief. Yale Medicine General Orthopedics specialists offer a variety of cutting-edge approaches to repairing cervical radiculopathy that can eliminate pain and restore quality of life.
