Rehabilitation Education & Resources
Rehabilitation physicians, or physiatrists, are medical doctors who treat injuries or illnesses that affect the brain, nerve, muscle and bone. They examine function as well as how people move. Physiatrists treat a wide range of problems — from sore shoulders and spinal cord injuries to strokes and traumatic brain injuries. At Orlando Health Rehabilitation Institute, our physiatrists manage the medical rehabilitation and overall care of our patients. A physiatrist attends team conferences and leads the team in the completion of the plan of care for each patient. Our physiatrists provide both inpatient and outpatient consultative services. And, they work closely with many of the other physicians that care for patients within Orlando Health — including neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, oncologists, anesthesiologists, and trauma physicians.
