Great Lakes Physiatrists, P.C.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians treat a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. PM&R physicians are medical doctors who have completed training in the specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and may be subspecialty certified in Brain Injury Medicine, Hospice and Palliative Medicine, Neuromuscular Medicine, Pain Medicine, Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine, Spinal Cord Injury Medicine, and/or Sports Medicine.

PM&R physicians, also known as physiatrists, evaluate and treat patients with short- or long-term physical and/or cognitive impairments and disabilities that result from musculoskeletal conditions (neck or back pain; sports or work injuries; and other conditions), neurological conditions (stroke, brain injury, or spinal cord injury) or other medical conditions. The team aims to decrease pain and enhance performance without surgery, and the goal is to treat the whole person, not just the problem area.
