Cervical Radiculopathy - When angry nerves in the neck give us neck pain, arm pain, and weak tingly fingers!

Cervical Radiculopathy is a neck and arm condition that happens when the nerves coming out of the neck become irritated, often causing neck pain that can spread down into the shoulders, middle back, arm, hands, and fingers. Some people even get pins and needles, numbness, and weakness in their hands and can start dropping things! Managing this condition takes time, and if done well, can prevent the need for any surgery.

The morning Shake, Shake, Shake - How Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can make you dance!

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition which causes pins and needles and numbness in the hands. One of the classic features is waking up in the morning and having to shake the hands to help get the feeling back. There are some great ways you can treat this condition but if left untreated, the muscles of the thumb can start to shrink and waste away, which can lead to the need for hand surgery.
