Non-Surgical Treatment for Formanal Stenosis

Formanal stenosis refers to a narrowing of the opening in the spine for the nerves that exit our spinal cord & travel into the body. Nerve impingement due to neural foraminal stenosis can damage the nerve, which is a serious problem.


The causes of foraminal stenosis include:

• Injuries

• Aging

• Inflammatory conditions

• Spinal surgery

• Growths or tumors

• Scoliosis may contribute


Symptoms include:

• Low back or neck pain

• Numbness or weakness in the extremities

• Radiating pain

• Sciatica

• Difficulty with walking or 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.
