Venous Insufficiency

Venous Insufficiency can cause burning, itching, swollen painful legs.

While arteries carry blood away from the heart, veins carry it back. In order to make sure that the blood only flow in one direction, they have valves. If the valves do not work properly then blood may pool in the limbs (especially the legs). This is called reflux. It can cause swelling, burning, itching and skin color changes. Your legs may also feel heavy, tired, restless, or achy. You may feel pain while walking or shortly after stopping. This is called venous insufficiency.

Whiplash

Whiplash injury treatment in Greenville, Spartanburg, and Anderson, SC with a non-surgical approach

About 10 to 20 percent of the occupants of a stricken vehicle in rear-end car collisions suffer from whiplash injury. This injury is defined as a non-contact acceleration-deceleration injury to the head-neck system. It is most often caused by a rear-end car collision and there is no direct impact on the neck. Whiplash results from sudden extension and flexion of the neck — in short, a force snaps the head forward and backward. It can injure intervertebral joints, disks, ligaments, cervical muscles, or even nerve roots.

Post Polio


Polio and motor Peripheral Neuropathy have much in common. They both involve the motor nerve fibers that carry impulses from the brain to our muscles. These nerve fibers are responsible for movement. Without them the brain signals that direct movement would never be able to communicate with our muscles.

In the case of Polio, the polio virus infected a cell body within the spinal cord named the Anterior Horn Cell. The anterior horn cell is the starting point — the life generator — of the motor nerve fiber. The anterior horn cell relays information from the brain, via the spinal cord, to the rest of the motor nerve that then communicates with the muscle.
