Hi,
Radiating pain, tingling and numbness in the arm signifies that your cervical nerve root compress in the cervical spine reasons-
Disc prolapse
arthritis of the facet joints
canal stenosis.
all this mostly results from degenerative process.
90% mild to moderate cases symptoms resolve in 6-8 weeks with physiotherapy.
thanks.
