What Do Physical Medicine and Rehab (PM&R) Specialists Do?

A physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) specialist is a physician trained in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders or injuries related to the nerves, muscles and bones that result in temporary or permanent impairment. Also called physiatrists, PM&R specialists provide integrated care in the treatment of conditions related to the brain, muscles and bones, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, shoulder pain, lower back pain, neuromuscular diseases and more. The goal of a PM&R physician is to help patients with injuries or illnesses that affect how they move to achieve an improved quality of life and functional efficiency. Their goal is to decrease pain and enhance performance by better managing patients’ pain without surgery, enabling them to live the most independent lives possible.  

At TIRR Memorial Hermann, affiliated physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists work in collaboration with a comprehensive team of clinicians including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, case managers, social workers, rehabilitation nurses and others. All physical medicine and rehab specialists listed in our directory are board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation, including adult and/or pediatric conditions. They have completed a physical medicine and rehabilitation medicine residency following medical school, and many have received further subspecialty training.
