What is a Physiatry?

Physiatry is the medical specialty that emphasizes the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of people disabled by disease, disorder or injury.

It is one of the newer areas of medicine that manages a diversity of conditions involving the nervous and musculoskeletal systems and focuses on function, independence and quality of life.

Physiatry, also referred to as Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, provides integrated, multidisciplinary care aimed at recovery of the whole person by addressing the individual’s physical, emotional, medical, vocational and social needs. Physiatry is unique among medical specialties in that its area of expertise is the functioning of the whole patient, as compared with a focus on an organ system or systems. A doctor who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation is called a physiatrist. Physiatrists can be medical doctors (MDs) or doctors of osteopathic medicine (DO) and practice in a variety of clinical settings, including inpatient and outpatient facilities.
