Rehabilitation Physician Services

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians are nerve, muscle, bone and brain experts who diagnose and treat injuries or illnesses that affect how you move. Our physicians are committed to helping each patient reclaim an independent and active life.

Examples of conditions and injuries that PM&R physicians evaluate and treat include:

  • Stroke
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Brain Injury
  • Back & Neck Injury
  • Post-Joint Replacement
  • Amputation
  • Arthritis
  • Fractured Femur
  • Sports Related Injury
  • Industrial/Work Injury
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cerebral Palsy

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Our providers utilize musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound for the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. They utilize the ultrasound’s diagnostic capacity to accurately determine the cause of the pain or injury right in the office— leading to a quicker diagnosis and more precise treatment for patients.

PM&R physicians are skilled at using ultrasound to readily identify and treat common problems such as:

  • rotator cuff injuries
  • tennis elbow
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • hip bursitis
  • plantar fasciitis
  • bone spurs
  • muscle tears
  • ligament injuries

EMG/NCV Testing

Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Velocity are electrodiagnostic tests which involve triggering select nerves or muscles with electrical impulses. Some common diagnoses which are addressed by EMG testing include pinched nerves, Bell’s Palsy (facial nerve), ALS, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis and other myopathies.

Pain Relief Injection Services

From sports injuries to arthritis: ultrasound-guided injections provide relief for many patients. Ultrasound guidance can be used to precisely deliver injections in the most effective location needed and avoid structures such as blood vessels and nerves—thereby providing relief to patients in a safer and more effective manner.
