There are many specialists on the physical medicine and rehabilitation healthcare team.
At the Medical Center of South Arkansas, we understand that each of our patients is an individual. Each patient brings to his or her treatment unique hopes and dreams, needs and wants. To ensure that personal needs are met, we offer an innovative "team" approach to therapy.
Following a thorough evaluation, and working closely with the patient and the family, an individualized treatment program is developed. The members of the patient's interdisciplinary team are outlined in this program, and depending on the patient's individual needs, this team may include any or all of the following specialists, physiatrist (specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation), rehabilitation nurse, social worker, dietitian, respiratory care specialist, therapeutic recreation specialist, speech therapist, physical therapist and occupational therapist.
