What’s Holding You Back from Getting Better?
If you suffer from chronic pain, it can interfere with every aspect of your life. Everything from sleep to your job, to intimacy, is shared with pain that just will not go away. Over time you learn to cope with it through adapting to the necessary changes the pain has imposed on your life, but that is not how you want to live. Some of the medical interventions you have tried may no longer be as effective at relieving the pain, or maybe they weren’t effective from the start, but there is hope even if you have resigned and accepted that you must live with the pain. Here are a few reasons why you should give recovery another try:
You Never Got a Proper Diagnosis
The first step in eliminating chronic pain is to get a definitive diagnosis that works for you. If you have been suffering from pain for any length of time, you have likely heard different explanations as to its cause. However, have you considered that your body works as a system with no part isolated from the rest?
Underlying or comorbid conditions can be at the root of pain or prevent healing. For instance, peripheral artery disease (PAD) exists in as high as 29 percent of patients in primary care practices and can exist alongside a neurogenic (nerve involvement) condition. At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, we not only look at the condition at hand, but also at the entire body to see what other issues might be affecting your pain – whether it be stress, anxiety, or another condition or disease. If neuropathy (nerve damage) has a cause, we will find the problem and work to correct it rather than just treating the symptoms. This permits your body to heal and stop hurting.
There is a Wide Variety of Treatment Options You May Never Have Heard of
Even after the medical community has diagnosed your condition, you may have been told there is not much you can do about the pain. This is one of the main reasons why so many sufferers are left without a resolution – they aren’t in touch with a specialist who can help. A doctor that can help reduce the pain, change your relationship to the pain, and improve quality of life.
We have a long history studying, researching, diagnosing and treating conditions such as osteoarthritis, neuropathy, fibromyalgia, and RSD/CRPS. Our experience and understanding of these conditions allow us to get to the bottom of your pain. Although traditional approaches of administering medication and attending physical therapy may provide relief, we also employ other means to help. For example, through regenerative medicine, we can encourage your body to regenerate damaged tissue for long-term recovery. We offer stem cell therapy, prolotherapy and platelet-rich plasma injection as regenerative medicine treatment options.
Examples of Pain and Physiological Conditions We Treat:
- Diabetic Neuropathy
- Back Pain
- Lyme Disease Symptoms
- Migraine Pain
- Sports Injuries
- Weather-Sensitive Pain
- Hypermobility and Lax Ligaments
