A physiatrist (fizz ee at' rist) or 'rehab doctor', is a medical doctor who specializes in the non-surgical approach to illnesses and injuries, especially musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions.
Physiatrists focus on preventative medicine and conservative therapy. Physiatrists diagnose, evaluate, and treat patients with limited function resulting from disease, impairments, injuries, or disabilities. Their approach is comprehensive and functional taking into consideration the complexities of movement and how each individual's personal characteristics impact it.
