Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
OrthoAtlanta physicians trained in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) and related non-surgical disciplines are dedicated to exploring a wide range of musculoskeletal treatment options that do not require surgery. For patients suffering from medical conditions or injury that cause pain or may limit function, our physiatrists can work with you to diagnose your condition and develop a non-operative treatment and rehabilitation plan designed to your individual needs. Our goal is to relieve your discomfort and restore function to improve your quality of life and help you achieve long-term physical well-being.
Among the many non-surgical diagnostic services offered by our physical medicine specialists are electrodiagnostic nerve conduction studies, joint injections, and fluoroscopic-guided epidural injections. Treatments may include one or several non-surgical techniques such as therapeutic exercise, injections, and physical therapy.
When a condition does not adequately respond to conservative, non-surgical treatment methods, and consultation with a top orthopedic surgeon may be necessary or prudent, the integrated approach to delivering musculoskeletal care provided by OrthoAtlanta provides beneficial continuity of care with the full complement of surgical and non-surgical specialists on staff in an OrthoAtlanta office near you.
