Piedmont Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, P.A. offers effective, proven solutions for complex, chronic and unresolved pain. This pain may be attributed to multiple factors and caused by a number of medical conditions, including:

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

Many people know that with heart or cerebral vascular disease, you can have a heart attack or stroke, but they are not aware that PAD, too, can have a dramatic effect on quality of life. To get an idea of how disabling PAD can be, imagine if the arteries in your legs were having angina or if your foot were having a stroke.

The posterior cervical sympathetic syndrome became known as Barre-Lieou Syndrome.

Brain Fog, Chemo Brain and Fibro Fog

Brain fog is an infrequent but significant symptom experienced by some patients in our Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson treatment areas.

Sometimes referred to as memory fog, chemo brain or fibro fog, brain fog is the inability to think clearly, focus or remember information. It can be a symptom of numerous medical problems, including diabetes, kidney, liver and bowel toxicity, vascular disorders, or Alzheimer’s disease. It frequently presents in association with chemotherapy, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, food intolerance, or depression. Chronic pain or infection from any source can lead to brain fog as well.
