Our specialty-trained, board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors at our Spine Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in physiatry.
Frequently referred to as a physiatrist, a physical medicine and rehabilitation physician is a doctor whose practice of medicine allows them to see a wide variety of medical conditions that relate to the spine, brain, nerves, bones, ligaments, and tendons throughout the human body. Highly specialized in providing treatments that focus on function, physiatrists often work alongside a team of medical professionals that include physical therapists, occupational therapists, physician extenders, and other medical doctors, such as orthopedic surgeons and neurologists, to devise a treatment plan that will treat the whole person, not just the problem area. Physiatry specialists who undergo additional specialized training in physical medicine and rehabilitation through a fellowship are often referred to as physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists.
If you're suffering from chronic pain, it may be time to visit a physiatrist at Tri-County Orthopedics.
