Brain and Spinal Cord MRI for Cervical Radiculopathy

About the Study


Have you been diagnosed with a pinched nerve or cervical radiculopathy?

We are seeking volunteers for an MRI research study!

We need your help!

You are invited to participate in a study that aims to better understand and treat chronic neck pain using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

We are recruiting participants with a primary complaint of chronic neck pain and a pinched nerve in the neck (cervical radiculopathy).

Symptoms include pain radiating into the shoulder and arm and feelings of muscle weakness and/or reduced sensation and numbness.
