What Is Thoracic Radiculopathy

Thoracic radiculopathy is often a result of spinal stenosis in the upper spine. It is commonly seen as a result of foraminal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the openings in the spine where nerves travel out from the spine to other parts of the body. This condition can often result from tumors, bone spurs, herniated discs, or spinal osteoarthritis. It is common for this condition to result in pain that radiates from the mid back and wraps around the torso, especially with activity. Sufferers can also experience weakness or loss of arm or leg reflexes. Thoracic radiculopathy can also often be found with myelopathy, which is a compression of the spine or as a result of spinal stenosis in the upper spine.
