Physical Medicine

We diagnose and treat conditions that cause pain, weakness and numbness. Our primary focus is to restore function through the use of examinations, procedures, and pharmacology.

What is a physiatrist?

A physiatrist is a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation. This requires an additional four years of residency training following medical school. The specialty of physiatry is moving to the forefront of modern medicine. Physiatrists treat a wide range of problems and primarily focus on restoring function. They diagnose and treat both acute and chronic conditions that cause pain, weakness, and numbness. Some examples include arthritis, back pain, traumatic injuries, spinal cord injuries, strokes, and amputations. Physiatrists offer a broad spectrum of medical services and may treat patients directly or act as a consultant. They may prescribe drugs, assistive devices, braces, or splints. They also utilize conservative therapies such as physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, traction, massage, biofeedback, and therapeutic exercise. Our physiatrist works closely with our therapists and chiropractors to develop a treatment plan organized to find effective results.
