What does a physiatrist do?

A physiatry clinician works with your facility’s interdisciplinary team to address any barriers to therapy and ensure progression towards functional goals. Physiatry clinicians are medical experts in the diagnosis and management of neuromusculoskeletal and disabling conditions including pain management.

Physiatry: Adding life to years

Partnering with CRC allows your facility to have its own dedicated Physiatry clinician to run a comprehensive rehab program and bring hospital-level care to your building.

We can help address barriers to therapy, set functional goals, manage pain and ultimately discharge patients quicker andmore safely - adding a layer of clinical oversight and capabilities to the facility and your patients who have been historically underserved.


How we help patients

A walkthrough of how we would help a stroke patient


Communicating with patients and providing prognosis on when they'll be able to walk, regain their sensation, talk and advance in diet based on their type of stroke


Working with therapy team to set appropriate functional goals, ensuring progress in patient’s functional status and providing expertise on which therapy approach is best suited for patient’s condition (Brunnstrom vs Bobath vs PNF)


Ensuring secondary stroke prevention. Discussing with patient's family risk of readmission and community based services that would be useful to decrease risk


Determining appropriate catheter removal and addressing incontinence associated with neurogenic bowel and bladder. Managing patient’s post-stroke spasticity and contractures with pharmacological agents.


Treating pain syndromes associated with stroke such as CPRS, shoulder impingement, and subluxation. Using physical medicine modalities and joint injections to help manage pain.

Emotional wellbeing

Addressing the psychosocial aspects commonly associated with stroke such as depression, intimacy, vocational training, and cognitive deficits

Discharge Support

Working with the discharge planning team on home equipment needs (grab bars, ramp). Recommending proper home and work supervision given the patient's medical and functional levels.


Staying up to date on the latest technologies and medications that can improve function and independent living
