Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
What you are experiencing is called 'Radiculopathy'. It basically suggests entrapment of a nerve root
in your cervical spine
in its origin or course.I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the cervical spine under his/her guidance to look for arthritis
or other changes in your spine.
Your doctor after diagnosing the condition may refer you for physical therapy
. The physical therapist will help you reduce your pain using stretches. The therapist will show you how to do exercises that make your neck muscles stronger.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
Dr Saurabh Gupta.
