What is Physiatry?

La fisiatría abarca el diagnóstico, la prevención y el tratamiento de todos los tipos de discapacidades relacionadas con el cerebro, los nervios, los huesos y los músculos. The goal is to maximize physical functioning, significantly decrease or eliminate pain, foster independence and improve the quality of life for those with a disability, chronic pain and physical impairments.
