The radiologist is describing small spicules of bone that are causing some narrowing of the bony canal through which the nerve runs. The MR findings would have to be correlated to your clinical findings and a neurologist might be helpful there

MRI shows mild inferior bilateral neural foraminal stenosis at L2/3, and L4/5. Pain has been chronic for years. What is the best medication or cure?

Treatment options

There are various options for treatment of chronic back pain. If the pain is truly due to mild neuroforaminal stenosis then an epidural injection mght help. Less invasive strategies like extensive physical therapy, Pilates, massage therapy, acupuncture are all options. Be sure to have a good evaluation of the cause of the pain.

Dr. Chris Faubel answered:

MRI-very mild broad disc bulge with posterior element hypertrophic changes causing minimal neural foraminal stenosis inferiorly. What does this mean?

"Arthritic spurs"

Mri
The radiologist that read the MRI is simply referring to arthritic spurs that are growing forward into the small space on each side of the spine where the nerves exit. Keep in mind that this is VERY common in people with no pain at all. This is only relevant if it correlates with your symptoms and physical exam findings.
