At Desert Orthopaedic Center, our physiatrist is the leading expert in the diagnosis and nonsurgical treatment of acute and chronic pain.
Physical medicine and rehabilitation, or physiatry, is a multidisciplinary medical specialty focused on the diagnosis and management of disorders affecting the nerves, muscles, and bones, from traumatic brain injury to chronic back pain.
At Desert Orthopaedic Center, our physiatrist is specialty-trained to employ nonsurgical treatment techniques to reduce or altogether alleviate pain in the neck and spine as well as countless other types of acute and chronic pain.
Taking a large-scale approach to patient care, physiatrists are dedicated to the improvement of the patient’s overall quality of life. The focus of a physiatrist is not merely on one symptom or condition, but on the medical, social, and vocational wellbeing of the patient after injury or disease.
Consider scheduling an appointment with a physiatrist if you have suffered or currently suffer from any of the following:
- Stroke or traumatic brain injury
- Chronic back pain
- Injury or degenerative disease of the spine
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson’s disease
Conservative treatments often include a combination of medication, physical therapy and exercise regimens, and minimally invasive injections to the joints or nerves as well as counsel on ways to improve overall health.
Our expert physiatrist at Desert Orthopaedic Center is committed to accurate diagnoses and will work with you, as a team, to establish a course of treatment that will best accommodate your individual needs, condition, and lifestyle.
The pain management doctor at Desert Orthopaedic Center understands that pain forces you to succumb to a restricted lifestyle and can significantly impact your quality of life. That’s why our physiatrist is passionate about helping patients in the assessment, diagnosis, and management of crippling or disabling injuries and conditions.
