Non-Surgical Treatments For Spinal Disorders

Non-Surgical Treatments for Spinal Disorders

Physical medicine and rehabilitation or physiatry is a branch of medicine which aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. Physiatry, also known as physical medicine and rehabilitation, takes a non-surgical approach to treating musculoskeletal problems, which is why physiatrists are often called non-operative spine specialists. By using physical therapy, exercise and pain management, physiatry has helped many people who suffer from injuries and chronic/acute pain to return to fully functioning lives.
