Acupuncture for Cervical Spondylotic Radiculopathy

Cervical spondylotic radiculopathy is a serious and common degenerative disease of the cervical spine due to irritation and compression of the nerve roots of the cervical spine, resulting in a series of clinical symptoms based on sensory, motor and reflex disorders, such as numbness and pain in the neck, shoulders, upper limbs and fingers.

A recent systematic review and meta analysis (the highest levels of evidence) looked at 27 studies with 3124. The results of the combined meta-analysis showed that the acupuncture treatment group was significantly more effective than the control group at lowering pain and improving function.

This indicates that acupuncture treatment is something that is extremely helpful for Cervical spondylotic radiculopathy. If you’re dealing with neck pain that radiates into your hands, I strongly suggest trying acupuncture before you consider any kind of invasive procedure like surgery.
