In brief: See below
A cervical radiculopathy means that there is some process that is affecting one or more of the nerve roots in the neck.
These nerves run from the spinal cord and make up the nerves to the arms. It can involve weakness and sensory changes in the arm such as pain, numbness and tingling or it can be pain only. When it is pain only we usually call it a radiculitis.

In brief: Cervical Radiculopat
Cervical radiculopathy is disturbance of nerve function that results if one of the nerve roots near the cervical spine is compressed.
Damage to nerve roots can cause pain, loss of sensation or weakness in the upper extremities, depending on where the damaged roots are located. Symptoms occur as a result of pressure from ruptured disc, arthritis, tumors or injury.
