Physiatry—The Specialty of Non-Surgical Orthopaedic Care

Also known as physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), physiatry (pronounced fi zi ae tree) is a medical specialty concerned with restoring functional ability and quality of life to people with musculoskeletal injuries and pain syndromes. An important complement to orthopaedic surgery, physiatry is concerned with non-surgical solutions to injuries of muscles, bones, tissues and the nervous system (brain or spinal cord).

A physiatrist is a medical doctor who directs the physical rehabilitation plan administered by a team of specialists. These may include, but are not limited to: physical therapists, occupational therapists, recreational therapists, rehabilitation nurses, psychologists, social workers and speech-language pathologists. Additionally, our physiatrists and surgeons work together to craft the optimal treatment plan for each of our patients.

OrthoWilmington has physicians who are board certified by the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and/or the American Board of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine. These physicians have extensive experience treating patients who suffer from chronic pain, and both are fellowship trained in Interventional Spine—the practice of providing spinal injections for non-surgical pain relief.
