Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

Physical medicine & rehabilitation providers, or physiatrists, focus on the prevention of disability and preserving function. Physiatrists commonly work with patients dealing with nerve, muscle, bone and brain issues that can cause temporary or permanent impairment.

Specialists in physical medicine & rehabilitation work with many different types of patients and a wide array of injuries or conditions. The focus of care is to help all parts of your body to work together effectively and to restore medical, social and emotional balance to patients’ lives.
