Physical Medicine and rehabilitation

Physiatrists are physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation, a medical specialty that deals with the evaluation and treatment of patients whose functional abilities have been impaired.
The disabilities and impairments may result from injuries or diseases such as neuromuscular disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, stroke, arthritis, peripheral vascular disease, work or sports-related injuries, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, tendonitis, and spinal cord injuries.
Physiatrists diagnose and treat both acute and chronic pain. They specialize in a wide variety of non-surgical treatments for the musculoskeletal system. They can help to improve a person’s functional capabilities by medical treatment and organizing and integrating a program of rehabilitation therapy such as physical, occupational, speech therapies, psychological, social nursing, prosthetic, orthotic, engineering and vocational services.
Getting an appointment with a Physiatrist requires a referral from your family physician, who can determine your need for this type of specialist.
