Leg, Arm and Hand Pain
About This Condition
Brachialgia is the medical term for arm pain that is caused by an injury or irritation to nerves in the neck (cervical spine). Also known as cervical radiculopathy, the condition occurs when there is an irritation or compression of nerve roots in the cervical spine. These nerves travel to the shoulders, arms and hands, therefore an injury in the cervical spine can cause symptoms in these areas.
