What is Interventional Physiatry?
Physiatry, also known as physical medicine and rehabilitation, is a field of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of the musculoskeletal system. This includes muscles, bones, nerves, ligaments, tendons and other structures, and the diseases and conditions that affect a person’s ability to function in a normal capacity.
Our fellowship-trained interventional spine and sports medicine specialists provide comprehensive, individualized care to patients experiencing functional limitations due to painful spine and sports injuries, as well as other musculoskeletal conditions and disorders. Interventional physiatry may also be used to optimize a patient’s condition pre- or post-surgery.
Using the most effective non-surgical, opioid-free treatments, ONS physiatrists practice thoughtful, conservative patient care, taking into account all aspects of the patient’s life. After a thorough physical assessment, a personalized patient treatment plan is designed which may include any of a variety of leading edge procedures such as image-guided Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and steroidal injections, therapeutic exercises, orthotics and mobility-assistance devices.
