Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (Physiatry) is a specialty of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of aches and pains and other disabling conditions. Board certified physiatrists must complete, in addition to medical school, a four year residency program. The training develops skills in areas of orthopedics, neurology, and rheumatology. This places your Bronx physiatrist in an advantageous position to decide upon the cause of your symptoms. In addition to the conventional use of medications, our doctors have expertise in the use of modalities (heat and cold modalities, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, etc.), exercise programs, manual techniques, equipment (splints, corsets, braces,) and coordination of therapy programs.
Our Bronx physiatrists treat patients of all ages, from pediatrics to geriatrics. The focus of the treatment is on function, and the doctor takes into consideration the whole person, not just the problem area. This specialist can diagnose and treat conditions that are results of an injury, illness, or disabling condition, and can determine and lead a treatment/prevention plan. Our doctors work with other physicians, which may include primary care physicians, neurologists, orthopedists, etc. Physiatrists evaluate and treat patients with short or long term physical and/or cognitive impairments and disabilities that result from musculoskeletal conditions (neck or back pain, or sports or work injuries), neurological conditions (stroke, brain injury or spinal cord injury) or other medical conditions. Their goal is to decrease pain and enhance performance without surgery. If you are looking for a gifted doctor for your musculoskeletal pains, come see us.
