What Causes Radiculitis?

Radiculitis occurs when due to some type of spinal abnormalities, a spinal disc presses against nerves that connect to the spinal cord. Herniated discs and bulging discs are common causes of radiculitis. Because the spinal nerves branch out to other areas of the body, the symptoms of radiculitis can be felt in other places besides the location of the affected disc and nerve root.

Generally factors such as age, genetics, injuries, poor posture, obesity, overuse, smoking, etc. increase the risk of spinal abnormalities, which can bring about radiculitis symptoms.
