Hi.

This basically means that the foramens (areas of the vertebrae where the nerves and blood vessels go through) are stenosed (smaller than normal) as a result of the intervertebral disc protrusion (bulging) which would lead to compression of nerve roots, thus, causing symptoms.

Hope this answers your query.
