A Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) physician or Physiatrist is a physician who specializes in conditions of the brain, spinal cord, and musculoskeletal system. These physicians are typically involved in the management of patients with traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke, amputations, major injuries, and recovery from major surgeries.

With additional fellowship training in pain management, you may find a PMR physician treating painful spinal and musculoskeletal conditions with a non-surgical approach. They are able to perform X-ray-guided spinal injections, ultrasound-guided joint injections, coordinate care with physical therapy, provide recommendations for adaptive equipment.

Additionally, a physiatrist can perform nerve conduction studies to help evaluate the function of your nerves. Nerve conduction studies are helpful in diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, and radiculopathy.

They also coordinate post-operative care with surgeons to ensure the best outcome for any surgical interventions you may have had. Overall a physiatrist’s goal is to help restore your function and quality of life through various treatment options.
