The Role of Physiatrists in Neurorehabilitation:

Physiatrists, or physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, play a crucial role in our neurorehabilitation programs. They provide a medical perspective on your overall health and well-being, ensuring that your rehabilitation is comprehensive and effective. Their contributions include:

  • Medical Assessment: Physiatrists conduct medical evaluations to diagnose and manage any underlying medical conditions or complications associated with your neurological condition.
  • Collaborative Care: They work alongside neurorehabilitation specialists, physical and occupational therapists and other healthcare professionals to ensure that all aspects of your rehabilitation are well-coordinated, integrated and aligned with your goals.
  • Medication Management: In cases where medication can support or complement your neurorehabilitation, physiatrists may prescribe and manage medications to aid in your treatment.
