Physical medicine focuses on the identification, management, and treatment of diseases that are connected to physical impairment, disability, and rehabilitation. It seeks to enhance the quality of life and function through non-surgical therapies.

Musculoskeletal injuries, joint pain, sports injuries, spinal cord injuries, stroke rehabilitation, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, chronic pain syndromes, arthritis, and other conditions that impair physical function and mobility are among the conditions that the physical medicine department treats.

Rehabilitation programmes are frequently an essential component of care. Your doctor may suggest and create a special rehabilitation programme based on your condition to help you regain your strength, mobility, and overall functionality.

Treatment may need the involvement of physiatrists (physical medicine doctors), physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, rehabilitation nurses, pain management specialists, prosthetists/orthotists, and other specialists as needed

Depending on the patient’s health and progress, the length of the treatment varies. Short-term therapies may be needed for some disorders, while longer-term care may be needed for others, such as chronic pain management or stroke rehabilitation.

The patient’s functional capacities, quality of life, pain relief, and promotion of independence in everyday activities are the main objectives, with the ultimate goal of assisting them in achieving the highest level of physical and psychological well-being.

A list of your current medications, any pertinent medical records, imaging results, and insurance information should all be brought. You should dress comfortably because you might have to go through a physical examination or functional evaluation.
