Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, also known as Physiatry, is a specialty branch of medicine that focuses on rehabilitation for individuals who have physical injuries and neurological disorders. Physicians in this specialty are known as physiatrists and have attained a medical degree as well as four years of residency in their area of specialty. The board-certified physiatrists at Tri-State Orthopaedics work with our physicians and surgeons to evaluate, diagnose, treat, and direct a treatment plan specific to each patient’s individual needs, communicating and directing that plan with our rehab professionals. Rehab may include work with physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists, and the physiatrist will assess the plan as it progresses.
In addition to their degrees in physical medicine and rehabilitation, our physiatrists have specialty training in spine care, electrodiagnostic evaluations, spine pain relief, musculoskeletal medicine, and minimally invasive spine techniques.
