Looking for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation?
A physician certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), commonly known as a physiatrist, specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. These medical doctors, often holding an MD, focus on enhancing functional abilities and improving the quality of life for individuals with physical impairments. Physiatrists assess and diagnose a range of conditions, develop personalized treatment plans, and play a key role in rehabilitation, employing a combination of medical, physical, and rehabilitative interventions. Skilled in pain management, they often use a multidisciplinary approach to address chronic pain. Some physiatrists specialize in electrodiagnostic studies for nerve and muscle disorders. Collaboration with a healthcare team is integral to their practice, ensuring comprehensive and integrated care for patients.
