Foraminal Stenosis

Foraminal stenosis is a common condition that occurs when the space in the foraminal canal around the nerves narrows. The foraminal canal is the transitional bony canal between the large spinal canal and the free nerve root passing out to the shoulder, arms and hands or buttock, thighs and legs. This narrowing puts pressure on the spinal cord and/or the spinal nerve roots, often leading to pain, tingling, numbness and muscle weakness.
