Physiatry – also known as physical medicine and rehabilitation – focuses on helping you regain your physical function and quality of life after an illness, injury or disability. Through a holistic approach that considers all aspect of your health and wellbeing, physiatrists can help reduce your pain and restore your physical abilities. Our focus is getting you back to doing the things you need to do and enjoy doing – with little or no pain.
The highly trained physiatrists at WellSpan provide customized care for the full range of conditions that affect your spinal cord, brain and nerves. We work hard to get to know each of our patients, understanding not only your medical history and conditions, but also your wishes and needs that should be addressed in your care plan.
At WellSpan, we take a team-based approach to your care – not only within the physiatry team, but also in our coordination of services with other WellSpan specialty providers. When you need additional care from other providers – such as rehabilitation or behavioral health – we can seamlessly connect you with those WellSpan providers to help you continue on your road to recovery. We also work closely with your primary care provider to keep them informed and involved each step of the way.
Our multidisciplinary team provides care for any condition that affects your physical function, including:
- Knee surgery
- Spinal cord injury
How We Can Help
Inpatient and Outpatient Physiatry Care
Our expert team provides physical medicine and rehabilitation care for adults in both the inpatient hospital and outpatient office settings. Our physiatrists also work within our interventional pain specialists to provide support for long-term pain management. Our physiatrists see patients throughout the region, and we are proud to offer a high level of care for a variety of conditions close to home.
If you’re in pain, we understand that the first thing on your mind is getting relief. At the same time, you’re likely concerned about long-term dependence on pain medication. We focus on getting our patients away from long-term pain medications through the use of complementary treatments, such as massage, nutrition, acupuncture and yoga.
Our world-class stroke program provides expert care for stroke patients and support for their families. Our full spectrum of services covers your care from diagnosis in the hospital to ongoing care through our office locations and rehabilitation programs.
Movement Disorders are a diverse group of diseases that result in the inability to produce willed physical movements or that result in involuntary movements such as tremors, including Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, restless leg syndrome (RLS), Tourette syndrome, Huntingdon's disease and more. WellSpan's program helps people with these conditions manage symptoms and maintain quality of life.
If you’ve experienced a complex brain injury due to a car accident, workplace accident, concussion or illness, you need advanced care. We have a neurologist in-house who focuses on brain injury management, and works to coordinate care with ophthalmology, occupational therapy, back-to-work programs and other services.
