What are Physiatrists?
Physiatrists treat a variety of conditions with physical medicine and rehabilitation. We aim to enhance function and improve quality of life if you’re experiencing a variety of conditions and/or functional deficits.
Following hospital care for conditions such as stroke, polytrauma, amputation or a spinal or brain injury, we are a resource to continue coordination of your medical care with equipment that will aid in your recovery. Our physiatry team treats patients of all ages with injuries to the muscles, bones, tissues and nervous system.
Our main goal and focus is to help relieve your chronic pain and improve mobility.
