Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians treat any disability resulting from disease or injury involving any organ system. The goal of PM&R physicians is to decrease pain and enhance performance without surgery. Often, they incorporate physical therapists and occupational therapists into their treatment plans for patients.
