The primary goal of physical medicine, which is also referred to as physiatry is to restore functionality as well as quality of life to individuals dealing with a variety of physical conditions. These conditions primarily affect the spinal cord, brain, bones, joints, nerves, muscles, ligaments and tendons.
A physical medicine doctor who has received specialized training in this field is referred to as a physiatrist. Dr. Thomas Nabity and Dr. John Santa Ana are both physical medicine doctors who specialize in designing patient centered treatment plans.
Physical Medicine Doctors Have a Wide Range of Medical Knowledge
Because physical medicine doctors receive extremely varied training, they have a strong knowledge of neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and rheumatological systems. This allows them to develop comprehensive treatment plans focused on non-invasive ways to provide relief for patients.
Both Dr. Nabity and Dr. Santa Ana of Michigan Sports Doctors are Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation giving them strong expertise in the management of sports related injuries.
Non-Invasive Treatment Options for Sports Injuries
At Michigan Sports Doctors, we specialize in non-invasive physical medicine treatment for sports injuries. Instead of relying on highly invasive surgery or addictive pain medications, we use our extensive experience in physical medicine to help you find relief from your sports injury.
Your Visit to Michigan Sports Doctors Starts with a Comprehensive Consultation
Today’s medical industry is driven by profits and little else. Our physical medicine clinic is setup in a much different way. When you first visit Michigan Sports Doctors, you’ll meet with one of our physical medicine doctors who will first listen to your health issues and only then will a treatment plan for your sports injury be presented. At Michigan Sports Doctors, we want you to be an integral part of the treatment plan, which is why we want to make sure you are given the time to fully explain your condition to one of our physical medicine doctors.
Once we have a treatment plan in place, our physical medicine doctors will connect you to other medical professionals such as occupational therapists or physical therapists if necessary. Think of a physical medicine doctor as the quarterback whose sole focus is to help you live a healthier and more active lifestyle!
