At Invivo Hospitals in Bangalore,
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), also known as physiatry, is a medical specialty that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions that affect the musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiovascular, and other bodily systems. The goal of PM&R is to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life for individuals with various medical conditions, injuries, or disabilities.
Musculoskeletal Disorders: Physiatrists treat conditions such as back pain, joint pain, arthritis, and sports-related injuries. They may use various techniques like physical therapy, exercise programs, and orthotics to improve mobility and manage pain.
Neurological Disorders: Physiatrists work with patients who have neurological conditions like stroke, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, and cerebral palsy. They focus on optimizing function and minimizing disability through therapies tailored to each patient’s needs.
Pain Management: Physiatrists are experts in pain management, employing both non-invasive and minimally invasive techniques to address acute and chronic pain. These techniques may include medication management, nerve blocks, injections, and physical modalities like heat or cold therapy.
Rehabilitation after Surgery: Physiatrists play a crucial role in postoperative care by designing personalized rehabilitation programs to help patients recover after orthopedic surgeries, joint replacements, and other surgical procedures.
Amputations and Prosthetics: Physiatrists assist patients who have undergone limb amputations by helping them adapt to their new circumstances and facilitating the fitting and use of prosthetic limbs.
Geriatric Rehabilitation: Physiatrists often work with older adults to address mobility issues, improve balance, and manage age-related conditions to enhance their overall quality of life.
Pediatric Rehabilitation: For children with congenital disabilities, developmental delays, or acquired injuries, physiatrists collaborate with a multidisciplinary team to develop tailored treatment plans that support growth and development.
Sports Medicine: Physiatrists specializing in sports medicine focus on preventing and treating injuries related to physical activity. They work with athletes to optimize performance, prevent injuries, and aid in recovery.
Treatment in PM&R typically involves a combination of techniques, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, medical interventions, assistive devices, and patient education. The ultimate aim is to help patients regain their independence, improve their functional abilities, manage pain, and enhance their overall well-being.
