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.
Symptoms of foraminal stenosis generally manifest in the neck, arm or hands.
Symptoms include pain, numbness or tingling, weakness, and stiffness in the affected area. Your symptoms may vary depending on the location and severity of nerve compression.
Foraminal stenosis can affect people of any age, but it’s more common in older adults.
“Living with foraminal stenosis can be challenging, but with proper treatment and management, it’s possible to minimize symptoms and maintain a good quality of life.
