Hello,

Thank you for your question. Yes, physiatry can help with aches and pains all over your body. Generally, a physiatrist may use exercise, sleep, diet, and mindset to help you get as functional as possible, as quickly as possible, as long-lasting as possible, with as much respect as possible for your time, energy, money and hope, while helping minimize unnecessary medications, imaging or procedures and looking at your health in a holistic manner, and coordinating care with other providers. In the case of aches and pains all over the body, a physiatrist may be concerned for conditions such as fibromyalgia, and coordinate care/refer you for consultation with a rheumatologist, to see if there is a systemic inflammatory condition, or other rheumatological explanation for these symptoms.

Best wishes!

As a physiatrist, or sports medicine "function doctor," I care for the entire patient in a holistic fashion, including their physical as well as mental-emotion injuries, and coordinate a team of multi-disciplinary professionals to support my patients. This team commonly included psychotherapists and sometimes psychiatrists. My goal is to help patients get as functional as possible, as quickly as possible, as long-lasting as possible, with as much respect as possible for their time, energy, money and hope.

As a sports medicine physiatrist, I mainly use exercise, sleep, diet and mindset to optimize health, which can also help memory, along with many other aspects of function. I commonly evaluate and diagnose injuries of joints, muscles, bones and the nervous system, sometimes using minimally invasive injections, while minimizing unnecessary imaging, medications and procedures.
