Physiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in helping people regain function after surgery, a stroke, or an injury. They may also help people with issues such as controlling pain or regaining strength.
A physiatrist often leads a team of health professionals that may include physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and social workers, all of whom work together to improve a person's recovery. Physiatrists can further specialize in pain management or spinal cord injury.
