Background: There are several causes of nerve root dysfunction, but cervical radiculopathy (CR) is a prevalent neurological condition. The impact of cervical radiculopathy on lumbar lordosis as well as pelvic tilt has received less attention. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of cervical radiculopathy on lumbopelvic alignment in patients having cervical radiculopathy. Methods: A cross-sectional observational study was conducted on 100 participants of both sexes, aged from 30-50 years old. they were randomized into two groups of equal number: Group (A): the "control" (fifty normal matched participants) The study Group (Group B) (fifty patients having cervical radiculopathy). RasterStereography (Formetric 2) was utilized to assess the impact of cervical radiculopathy on lumber lordosis and lateral pelvic tilt. Results: findings of the current study revealed that lumbar lordosis and lateral pelvic tilt increased in patients with cervical radiculopathy (p<0.001 Conclusion:). Cervical radiculopathy has a major impact on lumbopelvic alignment, which should be considered when treating patients having cervical radiculopathy
