At Providence Medical Group Physiatry, our goal is to make patients feel better and be able to live well by restoring function that’s been lost due to injury, illness or a disabling condition. We provide non-surgical treatment options for both acute and chronic musculoskeletal issues, as well as comprehensive rehabilitation strategies for patients who have suffered debilitating injuries.
A General Physiatry Approach
We believe in a team approach to care. We work closely with your family physician and other specialists to provide comprehensive care and treatment options. We take a general physiatry approach and use a broad spectrum of diagnostic and treatment modalities to help restore maximum function.
Specialized Physical Medicine Treatments

- Electro diagnostic testing
- Peripheral joint injections
- Sports injuries
- Spasticity management
- Neuro rehabilitation due to stroke, brain and spinal cord injuries
We specialize in electro diagnostic studies such as electromyogram (EMG) to evaluate muscle function in patients with muscle weakness, and nerve conduction studies to evaluate nerve function in patients experiencing numbness, tingling or other unusual sensations.
