Interventional Physiatry at ONS Stamford and Greenwich offices
Physiatry, also known as physical medicine and rehabilitation, is a field of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis and treatments for the musculoskeletal system; muscles, bones, nerves, ligaments, tendons and other structures, and diseases and conditions that affect a person’s ability to function in a normal capacity. Interventional physiatrists treat pain using anti-inflammatory injections into the spine and pelvis guided by a specially equipped x-ray.
Many musculoskeletal pain conditions, including back, neck and joint problems, may be managed over time through conservative treatment using a variety of pain modalities and customized programs to enhance mobility and avoid surgery. Physiatry may also be used to optimize a patient’s condition pre- or post- surgery.
