Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) is a medical subspecialty that involves the nonsurgical management of injuries and disorders. The physiatric approach to patient care looks at the whole person and not just one symptom or condition. The primary goal is to maximize function — often through focused physical therapy, medication, and non-operative interventions. Our pain management specialists at HROSM are experts who diagnose and treat injuries or illnesses that affect how you move.
Our physicians use noninvasive procedures as both diagnostic and therapeutic tools, helping to understand the source of a pain causing disorder. By combining resources, our doctors can provide state-of-the-art pain management care with the latest technology and treatment choices.
At HRSOM, our physicians can use physical medicine and rehabilitation to diagnose, manage, and treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Spinal pain
- Radiculopathy or “pinched nerves”
- Sciatica pain
- Musculoskeletal conditions
- Work-related injuries
- Sports-related injuries
- … and more!
