Formanal stenosis refers to a narrowing of the opening in the spine for the nerves that exit our spinal cord & travel into the body. The causes of foraminal stenosis include:
Growths or tumors
Scoliosis may contribute.
Low back or neck pain
Numbness or weakness in the extremities
Difficulty walking or trouble with balance
In the lumbar spine, approx 1/3 of the neuroforamina is comprised of the vertebral disc. Due to the previously mentioned causes, the disc may lose its normal height leading to narrowing & nerve pressure. Non-surgical spinal decompression helps to remove pressure by opening the joint space & rehydrating the disc. This procedure successfully takes the pressure off of the nerve root; relieving pain & symptoms.
