Physiatry

A physiatrist is a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Physiatry is the branch of medicine emphasizing the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders, particularly those of the neuromusculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and pulmonary systems, which may produce temporary or permanent impairment. Physiatry is unique among medical fields in that its area of expertise is the functioning of the whole patient, as compared with a focus on an organ system or systems.

A physiatrist treats disorders such as:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Stroke rehabilitation
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Chronic pain
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

The goal of the physiatrist is to provide medical care to patients with pain, weakness, numbness, and loss of function, so that they can maximize their physical, psychological, social, and vocational potential.
