Thank you for your question. That is a very important question and I'm happy to help. Yes, a psychiatrist can generally help with memory loss. Here is a link that may be useful:
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.
