Physical medicine doctors

What is a physical medicine doctor?

Physiatrists work to improve the quality of life for patients with physical disabilities caused by injury or illness. Physiatrists use non-surgical treatments like therapeutic exercise, steroid injections, and assistive devices to improve mobility, reduce pain, and prevent deterioration. Rather than focusing on one part of the body, physiatrists treat the whole body, coming up with custom rehabilitation plans to help patients return to their highest level of performance without pain or weakness.
