PM&R and Regenerative Medicine

PM&R and Regenerative Medicine Physicians

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) is a medical specialty that concentrates on preventing, diagnosing, and treating injuries and disabilities that impair an individual’s functional abilities. Physicians who specialize in PM&R employ an interdisciplinary and patient-centered approach to aid patients in achieving their best possible physical, cognitive, and emotional function. These professionals possess broad knowledge of various body systems, including musculoskeletal, neurological, rheumatological, and cardiovascular systems. 

Regenerative medicine is a branch of sports medicine that aims to stimulate the body’s innate self-repair ability. The primary objective is to postpone or, in some cases, avoid surgical intervention. This approach encompasses an array of methods, such as cell therapy, tissue engineering, and the use of growth factors and other biologics. To help the body recover faster, regenerative medicine may also include procedures like Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections and tendon fenestration (TENEX).
