In brief: Yes?

Not sure what the question is, but a cervical herniated nucleus pulposus can certainly pinch or irritate a cervical nerve root and cause cervical radiculopathy with pain and/or numbness/tingling down the arm in particular patterns.

In brief: Not the same

Radiculopathy is caused by nerve irritation/inflammation.
This can be caused by bone spur (arthritis), herniated disk, and/or foraminal stenosis from disk collapse.
