Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Q&A

What is physical medicine and rehabilitation?


Also known as physiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation addresses your physical, medical, and emotional needs through therapeutic practice. Rehabilitation aims to provide greater independence and total bodily function. While a physical medicine and rehabilitation program comes individualized and specific to you, some general components include:


  • Disability treatment
  • Changing your surrounding environment
  • Integrating family with treatment options
  • Considerations for the severity of your illness or disability
  • Providing tools to help you better adapt


There is no one-size-fits-all for physical medicine and rehabilitation. You can rely on the experts at The Neurology Institute to customize your program and help guide you every step of the way.

Is physical medicine and rehabilitation the same as physical therapy?


Physical medicine and rehabilitation require extensive medical training and the possession of a medical degree. Physical medicine specialists, or physiatrists, design treatment plans, diagnose patients, and prescribe medication. These treatment plans guide physical therapists in their duties.


Physical therapists are not medical doctors, but aid in the total treatment of the patient by curating movement programs. These exercises also improve bodily function and quality of life when paired with the customized plan from the physiatrist.

What are common physical medicine and rehabilitation treatments?


Treatments vary depending on your specific ailments. For example, if you require respiratory management, the quality professionals at The Neurology Institute may offer ventilator care and breathing treatments to promote better lung function.


Other common treatments include addressing behavioral and emotional issues with psychological counseling, providing walkers or wheelchairs for mobility assistance, and aiding in sharpening cognitive skills like memory and concentration.
