The American Academy of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) is a national medical society representing 5,600 physicians who are specialists in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. They are called physiatrists. Physiatrists focus on restoring function. They care for patients with acute and chronic pain, and musculoskeletal problems like back and neck pain, tendonitis, pinched nerves and fibromyalgia. They also treat people who have experienced catastrophic events resulting in paraplegia, quadriplegia, or traumatic brain injury as well as individuals who have suffered strokes, orthopedic injuries or neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis, polio, or ALS. The Academy represents more than 87 percent of U.S. physiatrists and international colleagues from 37 countries. AAPM&R serves its member physicians to maximize patient function and quality of life by advancing excellence in physiatric practice.
