Physiatrists (say "fih-zee-AT-rists") are medical doctors who specialize in helping people regain function after surgery, a
stroke, or an injury. They may also help people who have issues such as controlling
pain or regaining strength. Physiatrists are also called physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors.
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 be board-certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
