Physiatrists are medical doctors who must serve a one-year internship and three years of hospital residency with specialization in physiatry. Some board-certified physiatrists have also received advanced degrees and fellowships in several areas of musculoskeletal specialization. They diagnose and treat patients by using non-surgical methods. Physiatry concentrates on personalized treatment to improve patients’ quality of life.
Physiatry uses electrodiagnostic medicine to detect areas of nerve and muscle damage, which includes electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS). These are used to measure the condition of nerves and muscles in relaxed and stimulated states.
