Linda Ward, CNP - Physiatry Nurse Practitioner at Mentor Ridge

What is Physiatry and how can you or your loved one benefit?

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), also known as Physiatry, is a medical specialty that emphasizes the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of people disabled by disease, disorder or injury.

Physiatrists combine Physical Therapy and pain treatments to help the patient avoid surgery. The goal of the treatment plan is to maximize physical functioning, greatly decrease or eliminate pain, foster independence, and improve the quality of life for those suffering from a disability, chronic pain and physical impairments.

A Physiatrist is trained to manage a variety of disorders and diseases. In the skilled nursing and long-term care setting, this may include:
  • Pain Management
  • Neurorehabilitation
  • Post-Operative Care
  • Musculoskeletal Care
To learn more about this service, please call 440-299-5500 or reach out below. Our Admissions Team is ready to help you with your therapy needs.
