Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) is one of 24 medical specialties certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Physiatry provides integrated care in the treatment of musculoskeletal and neurological disabilities, ranging from lower back pain to traumatic brain injury. PM&R has been an approved medical specialty since 1947. The ultimate goal of this medical specialty is to maximize the patient's functional abilities. Physiatrists often work with other physician specialties by coordinating the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation aspects of patient's care. This allows the patient to return as quickly and closely as possible to their pre- injury/disease level of function.
