Work related (it's what I say ,was a seamstress for 35 +) also car accident, hit by a truck behind,over since then I've had surgery on my neck, had spurs, my left arm I felt it numb.and pain wasn't able to plck a cup or pick my arm to wash my hair. But since Dr Avilla is using ejection on my spinal I use Fentanyl Patch every 72 hours and it helps tremendous .I'm seeing Dr,Fernando Avilla for 3year. One of my treatment was exercise, movement with arms by pulling a string or rope to the front of my chest / second ,had a bag of ice on my back This treatment, it help but not to say I'm going to be cure with the treatment. I'M 75 years old. --over all I have spinal stenosis and in pain all day,
