Physical medicine and rehabilitation, also known as PM&R or physiatry, is a medical specialty that involves the nonsurgical treatment of injuries and disorders and the pain that accompanies them.
Physiatrists, or physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors, are specialty-trained to employ conservative methods to alleviate pain in the neck and spine as well as many other types of pain.
The physiatric approach to patient care looks at the whole person and not just one symptom or condition.
