Physiatry, sometimes referred to as Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), is a medical specialty that focuses on musculoskeletal disorders, restoring function through non-surgical treatments. Our physiatrists treat conditions that affect bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons and nerves. The purpose of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation is to improve function and reduce pain while enhancing quality of life.

Like your primary care physician, who is the first health professional you visit for routine care, a physiatrist is often the first health professional to call when you have issues with your ability to move, or if you are experiencing pain related to sports or work-related injuries. For athletic injuries, we treat players ages 8 and up — from youth sports to college athletics and from professional players to weekend warriors. 

Your personalized treatment plan

During your initial appointment, our board-certified physiatrists at Edward-Elmhurst Health will assess your condition, discuss your goals, and develop a personalized treatment plan to get you back to the activities you enjoy. Along with our many innovative therapies, your treatment plan may also include physical and occupational therapy to help you regain your strength, flexibility, balance and activities of daily living.
