What Is Cervical Radiculopathy? Radiculopathy refers to a spinal nerve that’s been pinched or impinged. There are three kinds of radiculopathy: Cervical radiculopathy Thoracic radiculopathy Lumbar radiculopathy The only difference between them is the spine area where the affected nerve is: your neck, mid-back, or lower back. Your cervical spine — the top of your spine that extends above your shoulders — is the most flexible part of your whole spine. It allows you to turn your head side to side, up and down, and any combination in between.

What Is Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease? Lumbar degenerative disc disease is a chronic condition that results from osteoarthritis on your spine. It appears in the vertebral and intervertebral discs of the lower spine, otherwise known as the lumbar spine. As you age, these discs naturally dry out. Eventually, osteoarthritis develops, forming bone spurs on the vertebrae. The combination delivers chronic pain that needs medical attention. Although similar to lumbar degenerative joint disease, degenerative disc disease is confined to the disc rather than the entire joint. While the condition can develop without symptoms, most people begin to notice pain or stiffness in their lower back after sitting for long periods of time or following strenuous activity.
