Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation or physiatry aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. Our physicians are specialty trained in physical medicine and rehabilitation and are referred to as Physiatrists or rehabilitation specialists. Physiatrists specialize in restoring optimal function to people with injuries to the muscles, bones, tissues and nervous system that affect movement by the following:
Diagnosing and treating pain
The origins of pain can often be difficult to diagnose and treat. Many who live with acute or chronic pain feel that they may be imagining it and try to just muddle through the day. However, pain is the body's way of signaling that one of our systems is not functioning properly and needs attention - a pain rehabilitation solution.
Restoring maximum function lost through injury, illness or disabling conditions
Our providers diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system and the brain - muscles, bones, nerves, ligaments, tendons and other structures - and musculoskeletal disorders which can cause pain and/or difficulty with daily functioning.
Leading a team of medical professionals
While our providers do not perform surgery, they do provide a variety of medical services that may include a physical therapy referral, injections or medications. Your provider may order advanced x-rays or perform a nerve conduction study to further diagnose your symptoms.
Explaining the patient's medical problems and treatment/prevention plan
During your initial examination, one of our providers at Pain Rehabilitation Associates will work closely with you to attempt to determine the cause of your pain to initiate a comprehensive personalized treatment plan. The plan of care will be patient-focused, and adjusted accordingly to your response.
It is our goal at Pain Rehabilitation Associates to ensure you are able to live your best life, and it is important to us that you receive the best, most personalized care to manage your condition.
