Fremont Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Program at WTMF

There are a number of conditions that may be treated by physiatrists, who are also known as doctors of physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). We believe in providing the best possible care for our patients, integrating a multi-disciplinary approach to a patient’s well-being. A physiatrist focuses primarily on helping patients achieve maximum through treatment, and treats patients as a “whole” rather than simply fixating on the area that needs immediate attention. Various treatment methods and approaches may be used in reaching this goal. Your physiatrist may also lead a team of healthcare professionals, including physical therapists, occupational therapists, and physician extenders.

Conditions treated by the physiatrists at Washington Township Medical Foundation include, but are not limited to, the following:

When Should I See a Physiatrist?

A PM&R doctor treats conditions that cause disability. These conditions typically affect the musculoskeletal system in some way, which includes the brain, nerves, bones, joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments, spinal cord, and tendons. Some physiatrists have subspecialty areas of focus, but all have the wide-ranging training and experience necessary to diagnose and treat a broad variety of conditions. Physiatrists focus on non-surgical methods of care and treatment and may be part of a medical team providing your care, including, potentially, your primary care physician / internist, neurologists, orthopaedic surgeons, and more.
