For some injuries, surgery may not be the primary or only option. Our physiatrists specialize in the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of spinal and musculoskeletal disorders, including sports medicine, work-related injuries or degenerative conditions. They are trained in performing nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMG) of the muscles and nerves. In addition to utilizing an aggressive, integrative approach to decrease pain and improve function, our physiatrists work closely with the patients physical therapists to determine a comprehensive plan of treatment.
If surgery is a necessity, PM&R physicians work with patients and their surgeons before and after surgery. By directing your treatment team and collaborating with other health care professionals, a PM&R physician is able to specially design a treatment program tailored to you.
