The older we older we get and the more our body ages, the more we feel our body isn’t an invincible frame. Whenever you have problems with your bones or spine it might be a good idea to contact a specialist in the area of rehabilitation and pain medicine. Especially in the aftermath of an accident it is strongly advised to visit a Physiatrist.

What does a Physiatrist do?


A physiatrist is a medical doctor who is specialized in physical medicine, rehabilitation, and pain medicine. They are spine specialists with a focus on the body's musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Physiatrists treat patients of all ages with diverse problems ranging from simple low back sprains to complex disorders, such as spinal cord injury. Physiatrists follow a comprehensive approach, which includes treating the entire patient, not only symptoms. Physical medicine and rehabilitation often includes physical therapy. Sometimes other physical medicine professionals are involved in the patient's care such as occupational therapists or athletic trainers
