What is a Physiatrist?

A Physiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of pain and musculoskeletal disorders. This type of physician provides non-surgical treatments to help patients restore functioning lost due to illness, injury, or other disabling conditions. Physiatrists treat the whole person; they address physical, emotional, and social needs during the rehabilitation and pain management process.
