Physiatry - Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation - is the specialty of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders
With an aging population around the globe and the prevalence of chronic musculoskeletal and neuromuscular illnesses the need for long-term medical services conducive to functional independence and pain management remains significant.
The treatment of chronic pain syndromes in particular - commonly associated with chronic disabling illnesses - is complex and multi-faceted.
