What is a Physiatrist? A Physiatrist, also called Physical Medicine or Rehabilitation Physician, is a Musculoskeletal expert (muscle, bone, and nerve expert) that specializes in the non-surgical treatment of illnesses or injuries that affect how you move. This type of physician treats disabilities resulting from disease or injury and focuses on helping the patient become as functional and pain-free as possible. Physiatrists design a treatment plan that can be completed by the patient, or in coordination with a medical team that may include other physicians and healthcare professionals, such as Neurologists, Orthopedic Surgeons, and Physical Therapists.
