Thank you for posting your query.
Severe right neural foraminal stenosis refers to narrowing of the opening for spinal nerves to come out of spine and go to arms and feet. It is a finding on MRI of spine.
Treatment depends on patients symptoms and can include medications such as pregabalin, physiotherapy, epidural injections and surgery.
