Medical Conditions Article

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:

Leaky Gut Syndrome & Inflamed Intestines

Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) has been reported to account for at least 50 percent of chronic health care complaints in today’s society. In LGS, the epithelium (outer surface of cells) of the small intestine becomes inflamed and irritated, which allows metabolic and microbial toxins of the small intestines to flood into the blood stream. This event compromises the liver, the lymphatic system, and the immune response including the endocrine system.

LGS can be be a primary cause of the following common conditions: asthma, food allergies, chronic sinusitis, eczema, urticaria, migraine, irritable bowel syndrome, fungal disorders, fibromyalgia, and inflammatory joint disorders including rheumatoid arthritis. It also contributes to PMS, uterine fibroid, and breast fibroid. Leaky Gut Syndrome may also be the basis for chronic fatigue syndrome and pediatric immune deficiencies.

Fatigue, Snoring, & Sleep Apnea

Fatigue may result from several factors including, but not limited to chronic disease, poor nutrition (or gastric absorption), environmental toxicity and lack of restful sleep. Often chronic fatigue can be improved upon by reducing total load (the total number of things that do not allow you to get well). Improving “methylation” has recently proposed as a central theme as well.

Sleep Apnea Greenville

Methylation is the process of adding a “methyl” group (CH3) to organic molecules such a hormones, homocystiene and creatine. While supplements such as DHEA, SAMe, TMG, Phospholipids, Amino acids, Folate and B12 are available to help the lay person achieve this end, results are often disappointing. This is at least in part due to the hap-hazard nature of over the counter supplementation. For example, over half of all methylation occurs in the liver to help make creatine (which is needed for strong muscles). So if creatine is low, then adding the other supplements listed above is of no value. It is not really possible to know which, if any of these products are needed without formal blood testing. On the bright side, with formal blood testing addressing methylation deficiencies can be quite helpful. Naturally, getting a good night’s sleep can help alleviate the symptoms of many medical conditions as well.

Dance Injuries and Exercise

Dance as a Form of Exercise

Dance injuries are preventable. Dance can be an excellent form of exercise. Many dance students and professionals sustain injuries caused by high impact, repetitive stress. Often, these types of injuries are preventable; but when they do occur, they require specific types of care. Recreational dancers may also sustain injury. Often, they have no idea of what they are doing to their bodies as a result of their dancing, and as some medical/dance journals have noted, they have no idea of the risks associated with popular dancing.
