Also known as physiatry or rehabilitation medicine, or physical and rehabilitation medicine (PRM) is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians, also known as physiatrists, treat a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Physiatrists aim to reduce pain and improve mobility using non-surgical means. With specialized technology used to pinpoint the cause of pain, physiatrists are able to diagnose patients as well as develop appropriate treatment plans for maximum benefit.
