If you have suffered an injury in an accident in Ontario, you may be referred to a rehabilitation doctor, or a physiatrist.
How Does A Rehabilitation Physician Help An Ontario Accident Victim?
Rehabilitation physicians (physiatrists) are doctors who:
• Are experts at diagnosing and treating pain;
• Treat the person in totality and not just the pain;
• Lead a team of professionals. The team generally includes neurophysiologist, registered massage therapists, and others depending on the victim’s needs;
• Provide non-invasive treatments; and
• Restore original body functions lost through injury.
What Is Physiatry And What Is The Role Of A Physiatrist?
Physiatry is a branch of medicine that emphasizes prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to nerves, muscles and bones that produce temporary or permanent injury. Physiatry, also called physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, is one of the 24 medical specialties certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
In fact, the role of a physiatrist will also encompass aiding the accident victim to reach his or her full potential to cope with his or her problems in life. In this respect, a physiatrist may also mimic the role of a psychotherapist or an occupational therapist.
”Just wanted to take a minute and thank you for your advice and expertise in all aspects of taking care of my best interests.

I have sent two and both were accepted as far as they have told me and i hope things turn out well for all parties concerned.”
