Physiatrists, or rehabilitation physicians, are nerve, muscle, and bone experts who treat injuries or illnesses that affect how people move.
Acute inpatient rehabilitation
Designed for individuals who need frequent physician monitoring, the acute inpatient facilities provide 24-hour nursing and intensive physical, occupational and speech therapy as necessary to maximize recovery.
Inpatient subacute rehabilitation
For patients who require less medically-supervised rehabilitation, the sub-acute inpatient facilities provide treatment until patients are ready to return home or to a long-term care setting.
