Cell Therapy for Degenerative Disc Disease

While most people are familiar with stem cell treatment and degenerative disc disease many are not sure with if stem cells are used for degenerative disc disease.  The most common applications for stem cell therapy today are musculoskeletal in nature, for example osteoarthritis of the knees, hips, and shoulders.  So it is not surprising that others are looking at using stem cells for degenerative disc disease associated with neck and low back pain as well. At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA in Greenville, SC we have had great success for stem cells as a treatment option of musculoskeletal conditions for years now.   There is no doubt in our mind that they are effective for degenerative joint disease and in properly selected patients for degenerative disc disease as well.   Learn more about stem cell treatment for musculoskeletal conditions at piedmontpmr.com.

Non-Surgical Options for Foot and Ankle Arthritis

Chronic pain due to foot and ankle arthritis is common.  It can be debilitating and interfere with quality of life.  As a result it is not surprising that people are often willing to have surgery in hopes of getting some relief even if surgery would otherwise be a last resort.  There are many non-surgical options however that many are not aware of.   In additional to gait analysis studies to evaluate how normal walking may be worsening the condition and what can be done mechanically to treat it regenerative medicine techniques such as prolotherapy, PRP, and stem cell can help to restore normal tissue function and relatively simple in office orthopedic procedures such as ultrasound guided tenotomies (tendon repairs) and fasciotomies (for conditions like plantar fascitis) are now available.   What is better still is that in the majority of cases they work and are available right here in Greenville, SC at Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA.

Pain Control Without Opiates: The Time is Now

For decades now the pharmaceutical industry has told doctor’s and patient’s alike that they have developed new formulations of opiates that are safe and effective however these claims have become tarnished with the test of time.  Physician prescribed opiates has become one of the highest causes of death in the United States and opiate abuse worldwide is rampant.  As a result State Legislatures and Federal Agencies are finally trying to do something about it.   In South Carolina, effective March 15th, 2016, whenever a physician writes a prescription for a Scheduled drug (not just opiates) for a State Employee he must first log onto a special state run monitoring program to assist the State’s Law Enforcement Division with tracking of that patient.   In the State of New York in many instances opiate prescriptions have been curtailed to allow no more than seven days of dispensing.  And the CDC has just released a new guideline that affirms that there is no role for opiate use in patients with long term chronic pain.   At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA in Greenville, SC we have always offered a wide array of non-narcotic treatment options for people in pain.   And the good news is that they work.  Not only do they reduce pain they also address the root cause of the pain rather than just covering up symptoms.   Learn more about these options at piedmontpmr.com.  Pain control without opiates: the time is now.
