Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR)
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), also known as physiatry or rehabilitation medicine, aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. A physician having completed training in this field is referred to as a physiatrist. Unlike other medical specialties that focus on a medical “cure,” the goals of the physiatrist are to maximize patients’ independence in activities of daily living and improve quality of life.
Dr. Ledington and his care team are experts in pinpointing exactly where nerve pain is coming from, then shaping a whole-body, patient-centered treatment plan, based on each patient’s lifestyle and goals. Using cutting-edge and time-tested methods for treatment, the team helps maximize function and quality of life for their patients.
