What Is a Foraminal Disc Herniation?

Answer

A foraminal disc herniation is the breaking of the disc on its side area. It is also referred to as a far lateral herniation and in most cases it is not painful, as it does not touch the spinal nerve. As soon as a herniated disk is found, medical attention should be sought to avoid further damage to the disc.
