Physiatry Treatments

Typically, your physiatrist will recommend more than one treatment option to help you manage pain. Below are some of the options your doctor may discuss with you.

Education. Physiatrists strive to educate their patients on the best treatment options for their problem. Chances are, the more knowledge you have about your condition the better you’ll feel.

Medicine. Physiatrists are expert at prescribing medications to help alleviate pain and control symptoms. Continual follow-up and ongoing support is crucial for proper medication management.

Pain Management Therapy. This can include treatments such as moist heat, bioelectric therapy, ultrasound and more. Pain management is often used in tandem with exercise therapy.

Manual Therapy. This can include therapeutic massage, myofascial release, soft tissue mobilization and other treatments.

Relaxation. The mind plays an important role in pain management. Some common relaxation treatments are: deep breathing exercises, guided imagery, and biofeedback.
