Regenerative Medicine Evaluation Methods

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.

Hypermobility & Ehlers-Danlos

Hypermobility syndrome (also called Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, or JHS) is one of the most common hereditary disorders of connective tissue. The exact prevalence of JHS is unknown, since it can be indistinguishable from Ehlers-Danlos (EDS), specifically EDS-hypermobility type. However, EDS is typically used to describe more severe cases of JHS. The major clinical features of JHS include joints that move beyond their normal range, or weak ligaments and flexible joints. Patients with JHS often experience fatigue and chronic widespread pain in the knees, fingers, hips, and elbows.

The causes of peripheral neuropathies are not well understood, because in most cases people are told there is no identifiable reason. However, hardening of the arteries, diabetes, drinking, or chemotherapy are common causes.  With a little bit of investigative work cause can usually be identified.
