Sacroiliac Low Back Pain

Sacroiliac low back pain is a common disorder, maybe even more common that degenerative disk disease or sciatica.  Since sacroiliac low back pain is also considered a form of mechanical low back pain it cannot be diagnosed on traditional imaging tests such as Xray and MRI, or even with physiologic tests such as EMG.  In Greenville at Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA, we use physical exam, functional testing such as Gait analysis, Biodex and Posturography, and Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound to assess for the presence of sacroiliac low back pain and related ligamentous strain.   Once we have identified that your low back pain is due at least in part from sacroiliac involvement we formulate a treatment plan directed toward each factor that contributes to it.   Sacroiliac low back pain treatment requires patience with a long term goal of restoring balance to the pelvic ring.  Learn more about sacroiliac low back pain and treatment options at piedmontpmr.com.

Hypermobility and Lax Ligament Treatment

There are not alot of places in Greenville, Spartanburg, and Anderson that specialize in the treatment of hypermobility and lax ligament but at Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA that is exactly what we do.  Hypermobility and lax ligament syndromes share alot in common.  In many ways they represent different ends of the spectrum of the same disease.   In the case of lax ligaments someone might just be loose and not even double jointed.  On the other end of the spectrum hypermobility implies that the laxity is unusual; it is beyond being double jointed.  Like any other medical problem the more severe the disorder the harder it is to treat.   Fortunately several regenerative medicine techniques ranging from prolotherapy (to proliferate), PRP (platelet rich plasma), to stem cell in conjunction with other traditional and wellness oriented techniques can offer remarkable improvement in people with hypermobility and lax ligament syndromes.  Learn more about these treatments, and other options, at piedmontpmr.com.

Knee Bracing For Function

Making use of knee bracing for function can be an important part of any knee regenerative medicine program.   Knee bracing for function does not really fix or try to regenerate a joint like prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP), or stem cell but by adding a knee brace you can take torque and pressure off an otherwise over taxed joint.  That can help you function, enable activity, and be complimentary to other regenerative techniques while you are rehabilitating your knee. We provide a comprehensive regenerative and rehabilitative knee program for Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson and surrounding areas.
