CHICAGO, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush(MOR) is seeking Illinois patients with cervical radiculopathy
(a condition where there is compressed nerves in the neck area of the spine) for a clinical study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of the Spinal Kinetic M6-C artificial cervical disc.
There are 2 key findings that should be highlighted from this study: (a) implementation of preventive surgical decompression into routine clinical practice should be avoided until better-designed studies provide enough evidence for it to take precedence over a conservative approach; and (b) the presence of cervical radiculopathy
, abnormal electrophysiological findings, and T2 WI require close follow-up.
When neck pain is accompanied with radiating arm pain in addition to motor, sensory, or reflex changes resulting from nerve root compression or irritation, it is defined as cervical radiculopathy
Active myofascial trigger points might be more frequent in patients with cervical radiculopathy
Other chapters address mechanisms of neuropathic pain, therapeutics, carpal tunnel syndrome, cervical radiculopathy
, meralgia paresthetica, Lyme radiculopathy, neuralgic amyotrophy, herpes zoster infection, polyneuropathies, inherited amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, Fabry disease, proximal myotonic myopathy, complex regional pain syndrome, polymyalgia rheumatica, phantom pain, Brown-Sequard syndrome, syringomyelia, and headache disorders, and give information on the patient's history, clinical findings, investigations, diagnosis, and treatment.
is a relatively common problem facing the spinal surgeon, with an incidence of 83.
But now after undergoing surgery to cure what was diagnosed as Cervical Radiculopathy
, the tour has been re-scheduled for May and June.
He carried on performing but on returning home he saw an orthopaedic specialist who diagnosed cervical radiculopathy
This will not only allow the examiner to determine the severity of CTS but also identify whether it is purely a local condition or symptom that may be initiated more proximally such as cervical radiculopathy
Bronster's notes indicted that the patient's hand was weak, and his impresion was brachial plexus versus cervical radiculopathy
Amongst their many illustrations was the example of a 50-year-old female who had suffered nerve damage owing to extensive cell phone usage and was diagnosed with cervical radiculopathy
after complaining pain in her fingers and arm while holding her cell phone.
The benefit of a quick, practical and repeatable test of neural mechanosensitivity is clear, as it helps to guide the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of disorders such as carpel tunnel syndrome (CTS) (Coppieters et al 2006), cervical radiculopathy
(Wainner et al 2003) and whiplash associated disorders (Sterling & Pedler 2008).
