Neck injuries that cause compression or damage to nerve roots near the cervical vertebrae of the neck are called cervical radiculopathy. Patients often suffer from pain and the loss of sensation in different parts of the upper extremities. PRP injections can be an effective treatment option for this condition.
Those patients with cervical radiculopathy tend to have their conditions dissipate naturally. A support collar can help the muscles in the neck to rest. Certain exercises can strengthen neck muscles, alleviate pain and improve the neck’s range of motion. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and oral corticosteroids are common medications. Steroid injections might help for nerve recovery. Surgery, although uncommon, might be an avenue if other treatments are ineffective. PRP treatments can stimulate a body’s healing ability to assist in recovery.
