Physical medicine and rehabilitation, also known as physiatry, is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to people with physical impairments or disabilities. A physiatrist focuses on the “whole person”, taking into account all aspects of a patient’s life that may be affected by their disability or chronic pain. The goal of treatment is to help patients live a more functional, pain-free life without necessarily having to undergo surgery.
