Also called rehabilitation medicine, physiatry focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disabilities and physical impairments related to the nerves, muscles, bones, joints, brain, tendons, ligaments, and spinal cord. Its holistic approach to rehabilitation incorporates both pain treatments and physical therapy so that patients do not have to rely on invasive surgical procedures to obtain relief from their debilitating conditions.

When You Should See A Physiatrist
Physiatrists diagnose the cause of your pain and physical impairment by extensively assessing your medical history, as well as listening to our patients and performing a thorough physical examination. Additionally, supplemental tests may be ordered, such as electrodiagnostic testing, MRIs, x-rays, and ultrasounds.
You should seek physiatry treatment if:
- You have a disability, illness, or had a treatment that caused you pain or hindered your physical functionality or mobility.
- You have been injured and are experiencing pain or limited physical functioning.
- You are suffering from chronic back and/or neck pain, pain due to a stress injury, or pain caused by arthritis.
- A stroke or other damage to your nerves that impedes your physical functioning.
- You are considering surgery to get rid of back pain or are recovering from a surgical procedure.
