Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

Pediatric physiatrists (physical medicine and rehabilitation) specialize in the rehabilitation care and medical management of children with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, neuromuscular disorders, congenital spinal disorders and various musculoskeletal conditions. The providers understand how cognitive and physical disabilities affect growth and development and incorporate this knowledge to work with patients and their families to develop and direct individualized treatment programs. The main objectives are to restore or improve function and maximize quality of life to facilitate school and community re-integration.

Specific areas of interest include traumatic brain injuries and concussion management, pain management, spinal cord injuries, myelomeningocele (spina bifida) management, plagiocephaly, torticollis, brachial plexopathies and spasticity/tone management.
