Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation - Guelph Rehab

Physical Medicine involves treating disease and injury with a focus on manipulation, heat, radiation and other physical means instead of medication or surgery.

Physical Medicine and Medical Rehabilitation in Guelph, Ontario

A physiatrist is a trained MD who specializes in Physical Medicine and knows how the body's systems work together.

Physical medicine is critical for the medical rehabilitation of nerve conditions, chronic migraines, trauma, brain injuries and acute or chronic conditions resulting from work accidents and motor vehicle accidents.

At Guelph Rehab, we can also assess and design treatment plans for musculoskeletal disorders, sports medicine injuries, post-stroke spasticity and spinal cord injuries.

Physical Medicine takes into account different aspects of healing and medical rehabilitation. We have found this multidisciplinary and cutting edge approach successful.

At Guelph Rehab, we gain an overall view of a patient's condition, including blood pressure, heart condition, bone density, muscle pain and flexibility to create the best course of action.

Our physiatrists can also recommend treatment changes based on feedback from an MD or physiotherapist.
