Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation primarily deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of diseases, injuries, and pains related to the musculoskeletal system (bones, cartilage, skeletal muscles, ligaments, joints, and nervous tissue). Additionally, it focuses on providing rehabilitation for individuals with disabilities who have impairments related to diseases of other systems. The goal is to maximize their existing capacities, reduce dependencies, and improve their quality of life.
The field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation involves the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of diseases, injuries, and pains related to the musculoskeletal system (bones, cartilage, skeletal muscles, ligaments, joints, and nervous tissue). It also focuses on providing rehabilitation for individuals with disabilities resulting from diseases of other systems. Various treatment modalities are employed based on the patient’s examination and test results, including medication therapies, injection procedures (such as soft tissue, joint, spinal, and nerve blocks), physical therapy devices (heat, light, electrotherapy), massage and manipulation, taping, exercise programs, lymphedema treatment, spa therapy, hydrotherapy, occupational and recreational therapy, speech and language therapy, swallowing therapy, patient education, orthotics-prosthetics applications, assistive technology applications, and advanced technology-based rehabilitation practices (such as robotic rehabilitation, virtual reality).
Patients in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation department may receive treatment on an inpatient or outpatient basis, attending the hospital daily.
