Empowering Healing, Enhancing Mobility

Our Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department (PM&R) is where excellent individualized therapy for both adults and children is our primary focus. Our dedicated team of highly qualified and caring staff works alongside you to alleviate pain, restore function, and enhance movement. As a full-service program, we offer comprehensive treatments tailored to your unique needs. 

Our PM&R department specializes in providing medical consultations and therapy services, including physical, occupational, and speech therapy for adults and children.

Distinguished by our personalized, outcomes-driven approach, we focus on optimizing the functional mobility and quality of life of our patients by providing pre-surgical education, safety and falls prevention classes, back safety training, wellness & fitness education, and community-based workshops and lectures in collaboration with our EHS partners in the Women’s Health, External Affairs, and Population Health departments.

Scope of Services

We take pride in our scope of services designed to enhance your overall quality of life. Our team of skilled physiatrists and therapists work with you to develop tailored treatment plans to optimize your physical function and mobility. 

Our services encompass a range of treatments, including:

  • Comprehensive Treatment Plans: Customized therapy and rehabilitation services developed by our skilled team of physiatrists and therapists.
  • Special Programs: Including hand, elbow, and shoulder therapy; pain management and mobility enhancement; stroke rehabilitation and fall prevention; and specialized programs for women and oncology patients.
  • Vestibular Dysfunction and Balance Assessment: We provide specialized diagnostic testing for patients with vestibular and balance conditions. This technology is used in differential diagnosis to visualize and record eye movements that can be caused by vestibular neuritis, vestibular migraines, BPPV, Meniere’s disease, and/or other brain-related causes.
  • Electromyography (EMG): This test measures muscle response or electrical activity in response to a nerve’s stimulation of the muscle and is used to help detect neuromuscular abnormalities.
