WVU Medicine physiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation and treat patients with orthopaedic or neurological issues that affect movement of the body. Your physiatrist will help manage any medical issues you may experience throughout your course of physical therapy or occupational therapy, including pain management or chronic conditions, like diabetes, heart disease, or hypertension. Our goal is to help you restore function and resume daily activities from a disability, disease, disorder, or injury you’re facing.

We work with your physical and occupational therapists to coordinate care, monitor progress, and make any adjustments to your treatment plan as needed.
