Aids in Treating Neurologic & Musculoskeletal Disorders
Weston, FL – It seems that most all medicine is literally “Physical Medicine,” yet, unless you’ve actually experienced the vital skill-set of a “Physical Medicine Physician,” or “Physiatrist,” you may not know “The Rest of the Story.”
Physiatrists are trained in the rehabilitation of neurologic disorders, and in the diagnosis and management of impairments of the musculoskeletal (including sports and occupational aspects) and other organ systems, and the long-term management of patients with disabling conditions. Physiatrists provide leadership to multidisciplinary teams concerned with maximal restoration or development of physical, psychological, social, occupational and vocational functions in persons whose abilities have been limited by disease, trauma, congenital disorders or pain to enable people to achieve their maximum functional abilities.
“We think this bolsters our already-comprehensive program,” says WMHC spokesperson Dennis Spoonhour. “This application helps people of all ages with physical and/or cognitive impairment and disability, as well as those with painful or functionally limiting conditions. This addition allows more diagnostic and therapeutic injection procedures, electrodiagnostic medicine, with emphasis on prevention on prevention of complications of disability.
