Scope and Importance:
Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), also called physiatry, is the branch of medicine emphasizing the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders – particularly related to the nerves, muscles, and bones – that may produce temporary or permanent impairment. PM&R is one of 24 medical specialties certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties. PM&R provides integrated care in the treatment of conditions related to the brain, muscles, and bones, spanning from traumatic brain injury to lower back pain.
Rehabilitation can help many body functions, including bowel and bladder problems, chewing and swallowing, problems thinking or reasoning, movement or mobility, speech, and language. The term 'physiatry' was coined by Dr. Frank H. Krusen in 1938. (PM&R) is one of the 24 specialties recognized by American board of medical specialties Physiatrists mainly work in three areas which are as following: • Musculoskeletal injuries and acute and chronic pain syndromes
• Electro-diagnostic medicine
• Rehabilitation for severe impairments and functional limitations
Main disorders which are treated by Physiatrists are:
• Carpal tunnel
• Neck pain, Back pain, Arthritis
• Sports injuries, Brain injury, Industrial/work injuries
• Herniated disc
• Pinched nerve
• Concussion In physical medicine physicians offer a wide variety of treatment to the patient but they do not perform surgery, but they do perform stiches to minor wounds etc.
They mainly prescribe heat and cold therapy, massage, physical exercise, traction exercises etc. physiatrists may take special training for intrathecal medication and botox injections as well as spinal intervention techniques to treat pain and nerve blocks.
The Physical Therapists industry has benefited in the past five years from an aging population and increased prevalence of chronic diseases, both of which have expanded demand for industry services. Additionally, higher rates of private health insurance resulting from federal healthcare reform have made industry services affordable to more of the population. Despite expanding revenue, however, physical therapists have faced significant cost pressures, and consolidation and specialization within the industry have increased.
