Ortho / Neuro

The diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic or neurological conditions are often carried out by a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialist, or “physiatrist”. Physiatrists combine knowledge and training in history and physical exam skills, imaging with x-ray, MRI or other options, electro-diagnostic testing (EMG), and the use of fluoroscopically or ultrasound guided spinal or peripheral injections for diagnostic purposes. The expertise of PMR physicians also includes the coordination of therapies, medication management, surgical referrals, and injections to provide a specific program that matches the needs of each patient.
