Physical medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) is a branch of medicine that specializes on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders that may result or resulted to temporary and permanent physical impairment. It is also called Physiatry. Physiatrists, also known as rehabilitation physicians, are medical doctors that emphasize on the treatment of injuries or illnesses that directly affect body movements.
Physiatrists are doctors that also centralizes in targeting the effects of major impairment caused by severe medical conditions— illnesses involving the bones and muscles, and, the brain and the nerves— and accidents— resulting from a variety of accidents like vehicular accidents to sporting events encountered by athletes. In simpler terms, they deal with the aftermath of these injuries or diseases.
Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, or DOs, are fully licensed physicians who practice in all areas of medicine. Emphasizing a whole-person approach to treatment and care, DOs are trained to listen and partner with their patients to help them get healthy and stay well.
DOs receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, your body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones. By combining this knowledge with the latest advances in medical technology, they offer patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine today.
Osteopathic physicians focus on prevention, tuning into how a patient’s lifestyle and environment can impact their wellbeing. DOs strive to help their patients be truly healthy in mind, body and spirit — not just free of symptoms.
