Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation physicians or physiatrists evaluate, diagnose and manage patients with short or long-term physical and/or cognitive impairment and disabilities that result from musculoskeletal conditions (neck or back pain, sports or work injuries), neurological conditions (stroke, brain injury or spinal cord injury) or other medical conditions. Their goal is to decrease pain and enhance performance without surgery.
