Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R), also known as Physiatry, is a branch of medicine that focuses on the non-surgical diagnosis, management and treatment of musculoskeletal pain, such as in the joints, back, or neck.
AOS’s new state-of-the-art PM&R Procedure Room is fully-equipped with a C-Arm imaging scanner intensifier, a radiofrequency ablation (RFA) machine, and electromyogram (EMG) machine. Also furnished with five examination rooms devoted to PM&R patients, pre and post procedure rooms, and dedicated support staff, AOS physiatrists Dr. Jonathan Strand and Dr. JoAnn Dervay are able to perform various pain management treatments.
