What is Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation?

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation is a medical specialty that distinctively focuses on the evaluation, diagnosis and management of complex conditions involving nerve, muscle and bone, as well as other conditions that cause pain and disability. The specialty designation is often abbreviated as PM&R, and physicians who are trained in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation are commonly referred to as Physiatrists.

Why should I choose PM&R?

Physiatrists are uniquely trained to evaluate the whole person with a specific emphasis on daily functional activities (e.g., mobility and self-care) and quality of life. Our holistic approach focuses on non-surgical treatment with the goal of restoring and/or optimizing your self-sufficiency. Early intervention by a Physiatrist increases the opportunity for improved outcomes and the prevention of injury and disease. Our Physiatrists often coordinate care across several healthcare disciplines including, but not limited to, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, orthotics/prosthetics and psychology. If additional evaluation and/or treatment is needed, our Physiatrists routinely coordinate with various surgical and non-surgical specialists.
