Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R)
PM&R, also known as Physiatry, is a medical specialty emphasizing prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of patients who currently experience limitations in function resulting from any disease process, injury, or symptom. We utilize medications, injections, physical modalities, exercise, and education individualized to the patient. Patients who have neuromusculoskeletal disorders and/or acute and chronic disabilities requiring rehabilitation will benefit from PM&R. Our goal is to restore optimal patient well being in all aspects of life, including medical, social, and emotional.
Physiatrists care for a number of conditions including amputations, arthritis, brain injuries, burns, cancer, fibromyalgia, industrial injuries, multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular diseases, neuropathies, orthopedic injuries, pain disorders, pediatric disorders, cardiopulmonary disorders such as CHF and COPD, spinal cord injuries, stroke and trauma. People with disabilities occupy an essential and ever growing segment of the health care field. In order to help these patients, Physiatrists must be true to their altruistic roots and traditions of the field and their education by being able to manage the unique needs of persons with disabilities. Through a holistic and balanced combination of exercise, medication, and procedures, physiatrists can help a patient regain independence and improve their quality of life.
