Physiatry – Rehabilitation Medicine

Physicians who specialize in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation are called "physiatrists" (pronounced “fiz-ee-A-trist”). Physiatrists are specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of patients of all ages in three major areas of medical care: 

  1. Diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and pain syndromes,
  2. Electrodiagnostic medicine for the evaluation of various neurologic disorders, and
  3. Rehabilitation of patients with severe impairments.

The physiatrists at Johns Hopkins are not only highly trained doctors, but they are also active researchers in the field of rehabilitation medicine who teach future leaders in the specialty. We treat a broad range of conditions affecting nearly every aspect of physical and cognitive functioning. Contact us today to make a physiatry appointment.
