What is Physiatry?
Rehabilitation physicians are nerve, muscle and bone experts who treat injuries or conditions that affect how you move. Their goal is to decrease pain and enhance performance without surgery.
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, or physiatry, is a medical specialty that began in the 1930s to treat musculoskeletal and neurological problems, including severely disabled World War II veterans. Physiatry grew rapidly and focused its mission on restoring and enhancing functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities.
