If you are dealing with a loss of physical function and/or chronic pain, MaineGeneral Physiatry may be able to help.
Doctors who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatrists) have special training in treating people who have a loss of function due to stroke, amputation, spinal cord injury and many other reasons. The most common reason people seek the care of a physiatrist is an issue with pain.
Our Approach to Care
We treat your physical problems but we also recognize how pain and loss of function can impact all parts of your life and the lives of those around you.
That's why MaineGeneral Physiatry believes in a team approach that may include physical, occupational or speech therapists, psychologists and other physicians. Our focus, always, is you, the patient. We're with you.
Our physiatrists can prescribe physical therapies and medication, as well as perform non-surgical procedures to help restore function.
We can also expertly diagnose nerve and soft-tissue injuries and are well trained in electrodiagnosis (EMGs).
Some physiatrists, with additional pain medicine training, commonly use other non-surgical interventions such as epidural injections, nerve blocks and joint injections, including injections in the spine.
Several of our providers hold federal suboxone licenses and manage suboxone treatment.
