Abstract

ABSTRACT

Disorders of spinal nerve roots can give rise to disabling pain and weakness. Damage to nerve roots resulting from disc disease and spondylosis can be localized by attention to anatomic principles and with appropriate testing. Management strategies vary, depending on the clinical situation. Autoimmune, infectious, diabetic, infiltrative, degenerative, and hereditary disorders are also causes of nerve root disease. Other neurologic conditions can masquerade as nerve root disease.
