Maintaining a healthy and nutritionally balanced lifestyle is an important part of regenerative medicine. Due to its reliance on the body’s natural healing functions, making healthy dietary and behavioral choices are essential. This is part of the idea of reducing total load, which means eliminating or reducing things that negatively impact your life. By reducing total load, the natural healing process of the body can be amplified greatly without even undergoing formal medical treatment.
If treatment is required, a full exam by a medical professional is highly recommended to assess the root cause of the problem before proceeding. Often, problems arise during treatment when an underlying issue is unknown, so it is crucial to look at the entire body and determine the best method to treat holistically. Piedmont Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation uses cutting edge imaging and detection methods to evaluate their patients, including musculoskeletal ultrasound, electrodiagnostics, segmental plethysmography, and arterial duplex studies.
