At Providence, our physiatrists' 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.
Our physiatrists are muscle and bone experts who treat issues that affect body movement. Also known as physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, the doctors specialize in the following:
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.
We also offer EMG-guided injections to deliver targeted medications for musculoskeletal pain and other conditions.
