Spinal stenosis

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) - In this week's Neighborhood Health Watch we explore an illness that is somewhat unknown.

John Clay is treating spinal stenosis.

It is generally caused by arthritis of the spine, aging, and/or trauma.

Anti-inflammatory, rest and sitting down may be helpful.

See your doctor if experiencing pain radiating to the legs, numbness, tingling, weakness, or bowel/bladder dysfunction.
