Foraminal Narrowing (Foraminal Stenosis)

Advanced Treatment Options
for a Healthy, Pain-Free Life

Foraminal Narrowing (Foraminal Stenosis)

A professional multispecialty health care center based in New York, HealthQuest offers treatment for different types of spinal conditions. Our solutions range from nonsurgical and minimally invasive to surgical treatments. We treat foraminal narrowing or foraminal stenosis using advanced techniques.

Foraminal stenosis can be the result of facet joint osteoarthritis. It is associated with conditions such as bone spurs, disc herniation, ligament thickening and spinal joint enlargement. The spinal nerves leave the spinal cord through foramen or tiny spaces between the vertebrae to connect into muscles and enable movement. Foraminal stenosis occurs when narrowing compresses the tiny foraminal opening even further. The condition causes neck and shoulder pain that radiates down into the arms.

Foraminal Stenosis Pain Management

At HealthQuest, treatment for all spinal conditions is prescribed only after detailed patient evaluation and proper diagnosis. Advanced techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scan and other tests may be conducted to arrive at a diagnosis.

After detecting the underlying problem, our team of health care experts will recommend the treatment. The options we offer for treating foraminal narrowing due to joint inflammation would include:

  • Rest
  • Ice application
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS)
  • Spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustment
  • Physical therapy exercises
  • Epidural injections and/or nerve block
  • Pain management with Game Ready

Patients will also be educated on posture correction and activity modification to ease the symptoms. Surgery will be advised only if these conservative modalities do not work.

Optimal Outcomes with a Multispecialty Approach

HealthQuest’s expert team comprises neurologists, physical therapists, orthopedic specialists, Brooklyn pain management doctors, and chiropractors. Our collaborative approach ensures effective diagnosis and the best possible outcomes.
