Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), also called physiatry, is the branch of medicine emphasizing the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders – particularly related to the nerves, muscles, and bones – that may produce temporary or permanent impairment. At the Center for Women’s Health, our Physiatrists specialize in diagnosing and treating Musculoskeletal Disorders, Lymphedema, as well as providing special rehab needs for women.
