The foramen is the opening between the spinal vertebra where the spinal nerve exits the spine and travels to the body. Any structure that encroaches on this opening can compress the nerve producing inflammation and pain along the distribution of that nerve.

Causes of Encroachment and Nerve Inflammation

  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Disc Degeneration
  • Arthritic degenerative changes that narrow the intervertebral foramen
  • Spinal Canal Stenosis
  • Disc inflammation that release irritating enzymes
