Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Our physical medicine & rehabilitation (PM&R) specialists at Hinsdale Orthopaedics offer the complete spectrum of cutting edge treatment options to patients with problems of the musculoskeletal system. Using skills developed in ACGME-accredited training programs, PM&R specialists routinely treat patients of all ages afflicted with painful and function-limiting musculoskeletal disorders of the spine, peripheral joints, and soft tissues such as sprains/strains, disc herniations, rheumatologic conditions and athletic injuries.
Our specialists also diagnose and treat degenerative, developmental, acquired, and traumatic neuromuscular conditions of the upper and lower limbs, spinal cord, and brain.
