Your goal is our goal!
At Spine and Sports Physiatrists, our physicians are trained to alleviate and prevent disability and believe in the sports medicine approach.  Our physiatrists will formulate and supervise a return-to-work plan based on patient improvement.

Physiatrists are specially trained to alleviate and prevent disabilities and follow a “return to play” model, individualized to return patients to work as quickly and safely as possible.  Appropriate modified duty is encouraged during treatment course.

Non-surgical emphasis
Most musculoskeletal conditions can be treated effectively without surgery.  Our physicians are invested in finding effective, non-surgical treatments and provide appropriate referrals, if necessary, for optimal care.

Team approach
We coordinate ongoing care with therapists, surgical specialists, case managers, insurance adjusters, and referring doctors.  Our physicians will keep all parties informed of the injured worker's progress and your return-to-work plan, to assure recovery moves along as quickly as possible.
