Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation doctors (called physiatrists) care for patients who have physical limitations caused by an injury or disease. Their goal is to help improve your quality of life by improving how your body functions. The most common medical problems they see involve the brain, spinal cord, bones, muscles, ligaments or a combination of these areas.
While many of these medical issues cannot be cured, Temple physiatrists create customized treatment plans to help you reduce your physical challenges. Whether you’re facing a spinal cord or brain injury, recovering from a stroke, or managing the aftermath of a burn or surgical procedure, our doctors will guide you through a treatment plan that’s tailor-made for you.
