Physiatrists are experts in designing comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plans, and are integral members of the care team. They utilize cutting-edge as well as time-tested treatments to maximize function and quality of life for their patients, who can range in age from infants to octogenarians. At Physiatrist, we focus on recovery. Our doctors have an interdisciplinary experience, equipping them with a comprehensive knowledge of physical medicine and rehabilitative therapies. We have had a longstanding commitment to providing effective and affordable treatment. In physiatry, the goal is to provide nonsurgical treatments to injuries involving the nerve, muscle, bone, and other areas affecting the ability to carry out daily functions. People often confuse physiatry for physical therapy, as both physiatrists and physical therapists treat patients with the same types of conditions. The main difference between the two is that physiatrists are physicians who have completed four years of medical school and therapists don't go to medical school and then a minimum of three years of residency. Physiatrists direct and support patients through the rehabilitation process by diagnosing the problem and prescribing the correct treatments for the patient, including numerous therapies, holistic modalities, and necessary medication. Rehabilitation is a long-term commitment, and we want you to be fully knowledgeable about the options you have available to you. Please do not hesitate to give us a call or book an appointment to discuss with one of our doctors. We very much look forward to being with you step-by-step on your road to recovery.
At Physiatrist, our doctors are experts in this nonsurgical field of medicine. Because of their extensive education and training, doctors are able to offer conservative alternatives for several injuries and conditions that typically require invasive treatment methods.
