Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation specialists (sometimes shortened to PM&R or physiatrists) specialize in helping people regain optimal function following illness or injury to the muscles, bones, tissues or nervous system. PM&R specialists treat a wide range of problems including:
- Sore muscles
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back, neck and nerve pain
- Sports injuries
- Work-related injuries
The goal of the PM&R physician is to decrease pain and improve functionality without surgery.
Patients are seen by physician referral only; second-opinion consultations are welcome.
