Radiculopathy describes a range of symptoms due to the pinching of a nerve root in the spinal column. The pinched nerve can occur at different areas along the spine (cervical, thoracic, or lumbar). Symptoms of radiculopathy vary by location but frequently include pain, weakness, numbness and tingling. Sciatica is radicular pain resulting from irritation of the sciatic nerve, typically felt from the low back to behind the thigh and radiating down below the knee. It is the most common type of Radiculopathy.
