Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

Mercy Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation’s (PM&R) physiatrists provide patients with specialized back, neck and musculoskeletal care. The PM&R program at Mercy gives patients access to comprehensive state-of-the-art, non-surgical treatments for medical conditions associated with the spine and musculoskeletal system. Examples include pain, weakness, numbness and problems with movement. All of these conditions contribute to a decrease in quality life, and can drastically affect a person’s independence.

PM&R often uses therapy, exercise, prosthetics and adaptive devices as part of a patient’s treatment plan. Located in the Mercy Health & Fitness Center, Mercy’s physiatrists consider all of the options available and help you get on the path to improved movement and less pain.
