Physical medicine and rehabilitation, or physiatry, is a multidisciplinary medical specialty that draws expertise from orthopedics, rheumatology, and neurology. Physiatrists treat disorders of the bones, muscles, tendons, and nerves. They are experts at determining the true source of a patient's pain.
Physiatrists focus on conservative, nonsurgical treatment approaches, including exercise, nutrition, physical therapy, medications, and complementary approaches such as massage, chiropractic care, and acupuncture. If necessary, they can perform minimally invasive procedures such as X-ray guided spine injections and ultrasound-guided injections into joints or muscles or around nerves and tendons.
In addition to treating your medical condition, physiatrists focus on improving your overall quality of life, including your social, emotional, and vocational well-being. They are experts in designing comprehensive and patient-centered treatment plans.
