OverviewBy Mayo Clinic Staff
Specialists in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) at Mayo Clinic in Florida help restore movement and function to people disabled by diseases or injury.
PM&R physicians (physiatrists — pronounced fizz-EYE-uh-trists) provide compassionate rehabilitation care that considers the unique needs, abilities, and objectives of each patient. Physiatrists are assisted by physical therapists, occupational therapists and other rehabilitation professionals. Your PM&R team may offer treatment options including physical modalities such as heat or ice, acupuncture and therapeutic exercise to improve function.
PM&R staff provide many patient education opportunities to help you understand your medical condition and rehabilitative care.
