RSD Treatments

Dysautonomia and Sympathetic Pain

Dysautonomia is a condition where the autonomic nervous system does not work right.  The autonomic nervous system is responsible for controlling automatic functions in the body such as heart rate, blood pressure, pupil size, bowel and bladder urges, skin temperature, and even limb swelling.     Many people with chronic pain never consider that rather then sensory or motor nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones there is yet another major source of musculoskeletal pain.   The sympathetic nerves (that is their name) which are part of the autonomic nervous system, can actually cause more severe pain then each of the other tissue types just named.  When involved light touch, changing barometric pressure, and changing temperature can hurt.  Weather sensitive pain, as seen with conditions like arthritis, necks, backs, head ache, RSD/CRPS, and Fibromyalgia, is a true sign that there is dysautonmia of the sympathetic nerves.  The good news is that there is a way to identify it (medical thermology) and there are ways to treat it. Learn more about dysautonomia,  sympathetic nerve, and weather sensitive pain at Piedmontpmr.com.

Medical Thermography For World Health

While Medical Thermography has not yet enjoyed widespread use in the United States momentum is growing on an international level.   For example the recent International Consensus and Guidelines In Medical Thremography (ICGMT) on line symposium attracted 18,000 registrants and 197,000 views.   Last week I spoke at the United Nations/World Heath Organization on the use of Medical Theromography For Physical Disabilities and Non-Communicable Disease to a warm and receptive audience.   This is how movements start.  As medical infrared technology improves and costs have come down (both at a dramatic rate since the Gulf War and 9/11 in the United States) access has grown.  Through endeavors like the ICGMT and the creation of internationally peer reviewed Guidelines for Neuromusculoskeletal, Breast, Veterinarian, and Oral – Systemic Disorders by the American Academy of Thermology (AAT) the medical community is gaining respect for and an understanding of the utility of Medical Thermology in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.   There are many other examples of international activity including the European Association on Thermology Congress being held this September in Madrid, Spain and the Asian Congress of Thermology being held this November in Seoul, S. Korea.  At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA we are happy to offer a wide spectrum of Medical Thermology services.  Visit us at piedmontpmr.com

Your Stem Cells; Your Health

It is now quite possible to use your own stem cells (that is right, stem cells from your own body) to heal yourself.   We have several years of experience with stem cell procedures for joint space narrowing (arthritis), peripheral neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, spinal conditions, and CRPS/RSD. Eighty percent of patients get 50 percent or more relief and 50 per cent get at least 80 per cent relief.   Learn more by visiting the regenerative medicine links on piedmontpmr.com
