Plano Orthopedic Physical Medicine

What it is Physical Medicine?

Physical Medicine (PM&R), also known as physiatry, is a type of medicine dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders that may produce temporary or permanent impairment and functional disability. With our approach to conservative musculoskeletal / spine care and using the latest in electrodiagnostic testing methods these types of ailments are able to be approached from a more holistically. Generally, that means these tests can more accurately ascertain injuries to the nerves or nerve roots, or diagnose diseases of the nerves and muscles. The resulting tests can provide alternative, non-invasive treatment methods such as physical therapy, medication and injections.
