Abstract

Cervical radiculopathy is a disorder that occurs relatively frequently, which involves dysfunction of the nerve roots or spinal nerve as a result of them becoming inflamed or mechanically compressed. Minimal epidemiologic data is available regarding cervical radiculopathy [1]. The epidemiological study with the highest number of citations was conducted in Rochester, MN from 1976 to 1990, the findings of which indicated that cervical radiculopathy had annual incidence rates of 107.3 and 63.5 per 100,000 for males and females, respectively [2]. A study that was more recently conducted involving members of the United States military reported an incidence of 1.79 per 1000 person-years [3]. According to study findings, cervical radiculopathy has the highest incidence when individuals are in their 40s and 50s [4].
