Conditions & Treatments


A physiatrist, pronounced fizz ee at’ trist, is a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation. As the population of America ages, as people survive conditions that once would have been fatal, and as quality of life is an increasing concern, the field of physiatry is moving to the forefront of medicine. The specialty serves all age groups and treats problems that touch upon all the major systems in the body.

Since it is the concern of physiatrists to restore patients to maximum function, the difference they make can be dramatic. In the case of the herniated disk, the physiatrist not only takes care of the acute problem, but also treats the patient until he/she returns to optimal function, usually without surgery. The physiatrist also teaches the patient how to prevent the injury in the future. Because the physiatrist is concerned with all areas of rehabilitation—social,vocational,and medical— the quality of life is significantly increased for patients.

The physicians at Pain and Spine Consultants provide consultations and medical management to patients suffering from spinal and musculoskeletal conditions as well as physical disabilities. Our specialists combine superior clinical care with the latest spinal and neuro-musculoskeletal interventional procedures. As spine physiatrists, we are trained in the non-surgical care of all spinal and musculoskeletal conditions. We specialize in diagnostic techniques that allow us to tailor specific treatment programs for each of our patients. These programs may include the use of minimally invasive therapies, physical rehabilitation, and medications. Our goal is to maximize our patients’ function and to improve the quality of their lives.
