Though you may not have heard of this medical specialty, physiatrists – MDs and DOs certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation – can play an important role in treating physical disabilities caused by injury or illness. Our goal is to restore physical function in patients with bone, muscle, or nerve injuries or diseases – everything from strokes and brain injuries to low back pain and knee stiffness. Whether arthritis keeps you from gardening or a knee injury has sidelined your daughter from the lacrosse team, our physiatrists create a custom treatment plan to help you enjoy your favorite activities again. We restore physical function as it relates to each individual, whether that means goingback to work, playing golf, or getting out with the grandkids. Maximize your physical, biological, psychological, social, and vocational potential with the help of our team. The Physiatric Fitness Center’s treatments focus on helping the patient become as functional and pain-free as possible in order to participate in and enjoy life as fully as possible.
