What is Physiatry?
Physiatry is a department of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of disease using principally “physical” methods including physical therapy and drugs. Physiatrists are experts in treating the musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, bones, nerves, ligaments, tendons, and other components, as well as musculoskeletal problems that cause discomfort and/or trouble functioning. Surgery is not performed by physiatrists. The sole area of focus of a Physiatrist is on assisting the patient in being as functional and pain-free as possible so that they could also thoroughly enjoy life.
What does a Physiatrist do and when should you visit one?
Physiatrists plan the treatments for their patients in a personalized manner. Physiatrists focus on one or more of the following factors when treating a patient, depending on the root cause:
Whether your pain or discomfort arises from chronic health disorders, aging-related mobility challenges, or short-term pain following an injury, physiatrists develop a treatment plan to improve your quality of life.
If you have any of the following symptoms, you should visit a physiatrist:
- Many sicknesses, as well as their medications, might result in a lack of energy. Fatigue can make it more difficult to move freely, prevent injuries, and achieve your fitness objectives.
- Accidents or injuries can leave us with discomfort or reduced function, making it difficult to do everyday tasks such as getting up, walking the stairs, or sleeping comfortably. A physiatrist can assist in the creation of a treatment plan to address these concerns.
- They can also assist with chronic pain from conditions including back pain, obesity, nerve damage, stroke, and arthritis.
- If you are about to have a surgery or are recovering from one, creating a surgery plan with a physiatrist can help you prepare your body and speed up your recovery time.
What can you expect from a Physiatrist when you visit one?
Physiatrists give general medical therapy to alleviate pain and prevent additional impairment, thanks to their comprehensive training. The doctor will ask you about your medical and family history during your initial consultation to understand more about what is causing the condition.
You should also express your therapy goals, whether they are to relieve back discomfort or to improve muscular function. Physiatrists try to help you overcome personal obstacles that prevent you from living a full life, and what that means to each patient determines the optimal treatment plan.
If a diagnosis is required, the doctor may do tests such as X-rays, nerve conduction studies, and electromyography to determine the root of the problem and guide the next stages in the rehabilitation process. They also look at your overall health to see if there are any underlying problems, such as diabetes or arthritis, that they may work around or relieve the symptoms of.
