Cervical radiculopathy is a normal result of degenerative changes such as cervical disc herniation and bone hyperplasia, is associated with symptoms of neck, shoulder, and upper limb pain as well as upper limb paraesthesia and weakness, which are attributed to cervical nerve root irritation And significant functional limitations and disabilities
at Hlinc.Phyical Therapy/Haydee Lemos Inc ours therapeutic exercise interventions protocol aim to: improving body structure and function: pain reduction, forward head posture reduction, increase of peak-to-peak amplitude of dermatomal somatosensory evoked potentials,increase the proprioception and enhanced grip strength, neck muscle endurance, and manual dexterity; facilitating activity and social participation: decreased neck disability and improved patient self-care ability for daily life.
Our exercises for patients with cervical radiculopathy primarily incorporated aerobic ,strength training and stretching of the neck muscles.Strength training of the neck and chest and promote muscle strength balance around the neck, thereby strengthening body function, and preventing recurring injury. Neck stretching exercises can maintain the active range of motion and normal function of the neck, avoiding scarring, adhesion, and repetitive micro-trauma of the neck.
