Pain relief procedures

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) is a specialty whose physicians – known as physiatrists—diagnose and treat injuries and illness that involve movement. They are experts at diagnosing and treating acute and/or chronic pain. The physiatrist seeks to help the patient achieve optimal function and quality of life through the reduction of pain, including physical therapies (massage, exercise, braces) and interventional pain management (epidural injections, facet injections, and spinal cord stimulation).
