Physiatrists, or rehabilitation physicians, specialize in treating injuries or illnesses that affect functional abilities. This may include athletic injuries, neurological disorders, strokes and concussions, as well as impairments to the brain, spinal cord, nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
At Atlantic Rehabilitation, our physiatry specialists:
- Diagnose and treat pain
- Help restore functionality
- Provide non-surgical treatments
- Prescribe medications
- Educate on prevention and wellness
We believe in treating the whole person, not just symptoms or problem areas alone. Working with other members of the rehabilitation team, our physiatrists will pinpoint the source of any ailment and formulate a plan to aggressively treat it.
We also provide medical coverage for athletic teams, schools and other events, and assist in return-to-play protocols and decision-making.
