Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Physical medicine and rehabilitation is the health care specialty focused on restoring the health and functional abilities of people after acute illness or injury such as stroke, spinal cord injuries, heart surgery, amputation, joint replacement, sports injuries or spinal disorders. The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is dedicated to advancing knowledge of effective physical medicine and rehabilitation therapies, and to delivering the best possible patient care. Working together, Johns Hopkins physiatrists, psychologists, nurses, therapists and scientists help our patients return to their highest levels of independent functioning.
