What is Foraminal stenosis?

Foraminal stenosis is a type of spinal stenosis that occurs when the spinal pathways within the vertebrae narrow, causing compression or constriction of the nerves that pass through them.

This compression leads to pain or weakness in various parts of the body. Common signs and symptoms include pain or tingling sensations in the neck, arms, or hands, numbness, weakness, or cramping in the muscles.

If you experience persistent or severe symptoms associated with foraminal stenosis, it’s vital to speak to a specialist who can provide you with a personalized treatment plan.
