What is Interventional Physiatry?

Physiatry is a field of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of painful musculoskeletal conditions. Our physiatry specialists are fellowship-trained in interventional spine and sports medicine care. They provide comprehensive treatment to patients dealing with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions and disorders including injuries to muscles, bones, nerves, ligaments, tendons and other structures. Interventional physiatry may also be used to optimize a patient’s condition pre- or post-surgery.

Using the most effective non-surgical, non-narcotic treatments, ONS physiatrists practice thoughtful, conservative patient care, taking into account the patient’s lifestyle goals. After a thorough physical assessment, a personalized treatment plan is designed which may include any of a variety of advanced procedures such as image-guided Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), steroidal injections, therapeutic exercises, orthotics and mobility-assistance devices.
