Find a Physiatrist

Patients & Families

Physiatrists are focused on function- assisting you or your loved one in getting back to doing the things you or your loved one like to do, decreasing disability associated with your injury or medical issue, and developing a treatment plan that will maximize your health.

A physiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in pain management and who treats medical conditions that cause pain or limit function. Physiatrists provide a full spectrum of care from diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation with the goal of restoring optimum health and quality of life. Physiatrists achieve this by listening to their patients and working with them to develop a customized treatment plan which may include one or more of the following: medications, therapeutic exercise, injections, massage, electrotherapies and biofeedback, assistive devices, heat or cold therapy.
