In brief: Pinched nerve

Radiculopathy comes from a greek word meaning "root.
" in this case, the root is the start of the nerve coming off the spinal cord. There are many nerves coming off the spinal cord to go down the arms and legs to allow us to move and feel things. These nerves can be pinched in or around the spine by things like herniated disks and bone spurs from aging, or injury such as stretching the nerve.
