Breast Health and Musculoskeletal Conditions

Women have lots of reasons to question what is the right thing to do if they want to be proactive about breast health.   It is pretty hard not to have heard that Mammography, the once gold standard for breast cancer detection, has come under scrutiny for a myriad of reasons.   So many women have turned to other adjunct breast risk health assessments such as Medical Breast Thermology in order to do more.

The truth is that no imaging study, in and of itself, offers a holistic approach to breast health.  While Mammography, Breast MRI and Bresst Ultrasound offer structural assessments for abnormalities in breast tissue, and Medical Breast Thermography offers a complimentary physiologic assessment, both are for the most part still pretty focused on breast tissue in isolation.

Chest Wall, Back and Thoracic Pain

There is relief for chest wall, back and thoracic pain. Many people have chest, back or thoracic pain and are afraid.  They are told it is not their heart so they need to move on with their life, but they hurt and activity is still limited.  They are given pills or told there is nothing that can be done for them.   But that is not true.  Most chest wall pain is not from a heart condition and there is plenty that can be done for it.

It is always safe to see your primary care doctor or a cardiologist if you are worried about cardiac disease.   But if that work up or opinion does not yield results then you don’t have to stop looking for relief.  At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA we look for a long list of other medical and musculoskeletal conditions that can cause chest wall, back or thoracic pain.  Examples include strained ligaments, muscle spasm, nerve irritation, rib syndromes, thoracic out let syndrome, viral infections, and even neck or low back conditions (these can refer pain into the chest wall, mid back and thoracic areas).

Chronic Fatigue: Common Causes

Chronic Fatigue | Piedmont PMR

Chronic fatigue, while often associated with lack of healthy sleep, can stem from a variety of causes such as chronic disease, poor nutrition/gastric absorption, and environmental issues. At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA, we follow a simple recipe to relieve chronic fatigue. It is called “reducing total load,” which refers to reducing the total number of things that prevent a healthy lifestyle along with a true desire to get to the root cause of your problem. A reduction in total load can be accomplished by eating healthier, getting more exercise, or reducing stress in other ways. While reducing total load helps to put your body on a healing path finding, eradicating, and treating the root cause can also have a major impact. At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA, we do the assessments necessary to help diagnose your condition and offer a wide variety of treatment options to help eradicate the underlying cause.
