Physical medicine and rehabilitation

Our physiatrists are nerve, muscle and bone experts who treat injuries and illnesses that affect how you move and function, from musculoskeletal injury to paralysis.

Treatments included in your rehabilitation program may include nerve testing, therapeutic injections, medications, therapeutic musculoskeletal ultrasound, physical therapy, assistive devices (such as braces or splints) and prosthetics (such as artificial joints or limbs).

We provide rehabilitation services for a number of neurological and orthopedic conditions such as brain injury, stroke, arthritis, and hip and knee replacements. In addition, we also treat patients who have experienced:

  • Amputation
