Nerve Root Impingement - Causes

Nerve root impingement is due to foraminal stenosis, a form of spinal stenosis. Foraminal stenosis may be caused by a herniated disc, bulging disc, bone spur or facet joint hypertrophy.

A herniated disc does not cause pain on its own. The pain occurs when the spinal cord or spinal nerve is irritated by the pressure or a chemical reaction from the displaced herniated material. Loss of function, weakness, tingling, and pain can be caused when there is pressure from the herniated disc on the nerve roots. This is referred to as 'nerve root impingement'. The symptoms occur along the path of the nerve affected, usually the arms or legs.
