Radiculopathy is caused by compression, inflammation and/or injury to a spinal nerve root, typically within the vertebral foramina.
Causes of Radicular Pain, in their order of prevalence, include:
Herniated disc with nerve compression – by far the most common cause of radiculopathy
Foraminal stenosis (narrowing of the hole through which the spinal nerve exits due
to bone spurs or arthritis) – more common in elderly adults
Nerve root injuries (Traction injuries and Whiplash injuries)
Scar tissue from previous spinal surgery that is affecting the nerve root
Herpes Simplex Virus Type I Infection
