Ultrasound Guided Percutaneous Tenotomy

Ultrasound Guided Percutaneous Tenotomy offers a new and innovative technique for treating tendonitis and tendon related pain. With the use of Diagnostic Ultrasound for both localization and needle placement, a percutaneous tenotomy (tendon repair through the skin) can occur. This obviates the need to perform an open procedure (there is no surgical laceration). This outpatient procedure also saves facility and anesthesia related surgical costs.

Excessive repetitive strain of the tendon is thought to be a major influence in the etiology of tendonopathy. Traditionally, tendonosis is thought to occur with overuse, causing microtrauma at a degree and frequency at which the tendon can no longer heal itself. This situation leads to mechanical breakdown of the tendon.

Restore Under-Active Thyroids

Thyroid abnormalities are commonly considered for complaints including fatigue, cold limbs, fibrocystic disease, dry eyes, weight loss difficulty, and unresolved pain. Speculation concerning thyroid function often persists even in the presence of normal studies. It is not difficult to diagnose an obviously over- or under-active thyroid. It is, however, difficult to prove an under-effective, normal one.

Thyroid

One of the simplest ways to determine if thyroid function is a problem, even in the presence of normal laboratory studies, is to check morning body temperatures. They are preferably obtained before getting up from bed. If body temperature is at least one degree centigrade below normal (98.6 degrees centigrade), on a consistent basis, then restorative treatment should be considered.

Botox for Migraines & Muscle Pain

While many patients think of BOTOX® as a cosmetic treatment, botulinum injections are also effective for treating migraines and muscle pain. We are proud of to offer BOTOX® for migraines for Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson area patients.

Botulism is a form of food poisoning that occurs from eating a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. Botulinum toxin A and B are neurotoxins produced by Clostridium Botulinum. They have been isolated for pharmacologic use. When injected under proper medical direction these types of botulinum toxin can produce selective weakening within the muscles injected.
