Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, or physiatrists, are medical doctors (M.D.s) who diagnose and treat people using nonsurgical medicine for musculoskeletal disorders that affect the following regions of the body: the spinal cord, brain, nerves, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Since the disabilities and impairments related to some of these conditions can make it difficult for patients to function normally, a physiatrist or physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist may be able to offer treatment or rehabilitation plans that help patients become more mobile, improve their level of function, and reach self-care goals. Our physiatrist at Aspen Orthopedic Specialists often helps patients who have degenerative medical issues or illnesses, such as a brain injury or multiple sclerosis, by developing comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plans while working closely with our team of orthopedists and spine specialists.
Physiatrists commonly see medical conditions and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, such as:
- Back pain
- Multiple sclerosis
- Neck pain (may be associated with a sports-related injury)
- Parkinson’s disease
- Spinal cord injury
- Spine-related pain and dysfunction
- Traumatic brain injury
