Cervicalgia is usually not a serious condition, but it can cause discomfort and should be addressed directly. Cervical radiculopathy is a condition caused by the pinching or compression of the root of a spinal nerve in the neck. It can cause pain and weakness, especially in the head, neck, shoulders, and arms. Neck pain is also called cervicalgia.
The condition is common and usually not a cause for concern. Neck pain can occur for many reasons and can usually be remedied by simple lifestyle changes Cervicalgia causes localized pain, so it rarely radiates outward. You may experience something as light as a “stiff neck” or as severe as the inability to turn your head due to severe pain or tight muscles. You may refer to your cervicalgia as “a crunch in the neck.
Treatment of neck pain often begins with conservative measures and treatment modalities. Conservative measures are usually satisfactory in the treatment of whiplash pain. The condition may be temporary and may not last longer than a few weeks. However, some patients experience the pain of this condition for an extended period of time after the incident or injury, and in those cases more aggressive treatment is needed.
Cervicalgia (sur-HIV-Kal-Gee-uh) is a neck pain that does not radiate to the shoulders or upper extremities. There are many causes of cervicalgia; most of the time, it has nothing to do with neck discs. Cervicalgia is a fancy term for a neck injury (cervical spine) that causes pain due to this strain without spreading to other areas, such as the arms. Many claims for disability benefits due to pain and neck problems are caused by degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, inflammatory disorders, and other conditions that lead to several other problems, such as cervicalgia and other related conditions.
One of the most common causes of cervicalgia is poor posture or sitting long and hunched over a desk, laptop or smartphone. Anyone can be affected by cervicalgia, which refers to pain in the neck that does not spread to other areas, such as along the arms. Cervicalgia, also called cervicalgia or neck pain, can occur anywhere in the neck, from the bottom of the head to the top of the shoulders. While most causes of cervicalgia aren’t a cause for concern, there are certain serious conditions, such as meningitis, that may be causing discomfort.
While cervicalgia is a common problem, it is possible to reduce the risk of it occurring through some simple lifestyle changes. In most cases, cervicalgia is not caused by a serious condition and responds well to non-invasive or home treatments. Finally, in rare cases, cervicalgia could be a sign of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, meningitis or cancer. If you spend a lot of time at your desk at work or at home, you can take precautions to prevent cervicalgia.
That said, the neck pain that you may experience due to a herniated disc, either alone or in addition to the irradiated symptoms, can be called cervicalgia. The severity of pain will vary depending on the extent of the injury, and most cases of cervicalgia cause only mild discomfort. To qualify medically for cervicalgia disability benefits, you will need to provide medical documentation demonstrating that you meet the criteria for inclusion in the Blue Book, which is the SSA medical guide.
