Re: Neuroforaminal Stenosis

It means that the hole that the nerve exits the spine from has become smaller. It is degenerative in nature and usually gets worse over time. It usually occurs in the cervical and/or lumbar spine and causes symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling etc. It is not going to kill him but it could make life miserable.
