Rehabilitation physicians are medical doctors who have completed training in the medical specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R). Specifically, rehabilitation physicians diagnose and treat musculoskeletal problems, such as back, neck , shoulder and joint pain. They use a holistic treatment approach that combines the use of medications, injections, massage, bracing, electrical treatments, water therapy and exercise. They work as a leader of a team of Therapists and exercise professionals.
The focus is on the development of a comprehensive program for putting the pieces of a person's life back together after an injury or disease – without surgery.
Rehabilitation physicians take the time needed to accurately pinpoint the source of an ailment. They then design a treatment plan that can be carried out by the patients themselves or with the help of the rehabilitation physician’s medical team. This medical team might include other physicians and health professionals, such as neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, and physical therapists. By providing an appropriate treatment plan, rehabilitation physicians help patients stay as active as possible at any age. Their broad medical expertise allows them to treat disabling conditions throughout a person’s lifetime.
