What is Physiatry?
Physiatrists (“fiz-ee-a-trists”) are physicians specializing in the nonsurgical treatment of painful nerve, joint and muscle conditions. Our goal is to restore your function so you can get back to the quality of life you’ve been missing.
Spine Conditions: We offer effective nonsurgical solutions for conditions that affect the spine. Common spine conditions include arthritis, disc degeneration, herniated discs, sciatica, and whiplash.
Sports Injuries: Musculoskeletal injuries sustained on or off the field can damage joints, muscles, and ligaments. Rotator cuff injuries, bursitis, tendinitis, shoulder, knee, and ankle injuries and other such problems can be painful and require aggressive rehabilitation to get you back in the game.
Nerve Injuries: Pain can originate from any part of your body’s musculoskeletal system. Muscle and nerve damage is often caused by work or auto accidents resulting in back, neck, and extremity pain. Examples include radiculopathy and neuropathy.
Work Injuries: On-the-job injuries can occur in virtually every field. Some common work-related injuries include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, back injuries, and more.
It is important to see a physiatrist because these conditions can often be treated effectively without surgery, saving you from unnecessary risk, pain, and lengthy recovery time.
