Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians, also known as physiatrists, treat a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. They evaluate and treat injuries, illnesses, and disability, and are expert in designing comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plans. Physiatrists work to reduce symptoms and maximize function and quality of life.
Dr. Schwartz, Board Certified in PM&R, performs conventional musculoskeletal and neurological diagnostic testing as well as lab analysis for chemical, hematologic, metabolic, hormonal, immune, nutrient, toxic and microbial markers. This helps guide the formulation of comprehensive treatment plans which are routinely comprehensively explained. Rapid clinical outcomes minimize the need for medication and surgery.
