Acute and Chronic Radiculopathy

Acute Radiculopathy Treatment (disc herniation pinching a nerve root)

Specific recommendations are made along with a referral when appropriate.


Chronic Radiculopathy Treatment (spinal stenosis):

Nerve Mobilization:  This therapy is targeted to assist with improving scarring around the nerve roots, swelling within the nerve sheaths, and venous congestion (a slowing of normal blood flow to/from the nerve secondary to the spinal stenosis)

Figure 1.  An example of an acute radiculopathy (herniated disc in this case) that is pinching a nerve root.

Figure 2.  A demonstration of nerve mobilization targetted towards more chronic radiculopathic conditions.
