Physiatrist: Physical
Medicine rehabilitation

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians, known as Physiatrists, are doctors specially trained to restore function and improve quality of life in patients post-injury. Physiatrists are trained in the fields of neurology, sports medicine, spinal injury, brain injury, and pain medicine.

Physiatrists have many tools at their disposal to help diagnose and treat patients post-injury. Commonly, Nerve Conduction testing is performed by a physiatrist to determine the extent of nerve damage post-injury. Ultrasound evaluations are performed to visualize structural injury in real time to determine the impact of injury on dynamic function. Physiatrists will combine findings from a physical exam with these tests, to provide you with an individualized treatment plan. Additionally, physiatrists collaborate with physical and occupational therapy to enhance strength and recovery after injury.
