What is Physical Medicine
and Rehabilitation (PM&R)?
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians, also known as physiatrists, treat a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. PM&R physicians are medical doctors who have completed training in the specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), and may be subspecialty certified in Brain Injury Medicine, Hospice and Palliative Medicine, Neuromuscular Medicine, Pain Medicine, Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine, Spinal Cord Injury Medicine, and/or Sports Medicine. PM&R physicians:
- Diagnose and treat pain as a result of an injury, illness, or disabling condition
- Focus treatment on function
- Determine and lead a treatment/prevention plan
- Lead a team of medical professionals, which may include physical therapists, occupational therapists, and physician extenders to optimize patient care
- Collaborate with other physicians, which may include primary care physicians, neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and many others.
- Treat the whole person, not just the problem area
- Have a broad medical expertise that allows them to treat disabling conditions throughout a person’s lifetime
- Treat patients of all ages
WHAT IS PAIN MANAGEMENT?
Pain management is care that focuses on assisting patients in regaining control of their life through the alleviation of pain stemming from an injury, surgery, illness or other chronic medical conditions. Traditionally, many people believe that pills are the only way to deal with pain management, but our treatment plans challenge that belief as we bring a healthy alternative to dealing with injuries, acute, and chronic pain.
