A physiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating pain related to an illness or injury. Through extensive training and experience, this specialist has acquired an in-depth understanding of the complex relationships between the various moving parts of the body and how certain medical issues can affect a patient’s mobility, mood, and quality of life. When treating chronic pain, a physiatrist aims to pinpoint its source, then rehabilitate the “whole person” by addressing not only his or her medical requirements but also his or her physical, mental, emotional, social, and occupational needs.
