Why choose Ochsner Health for your physical medicine and rehabilitation care?
A disability, illness or injury affects more than a particular part of the body — it affects how your body works as a whole and impacts your quality of life. Physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors, also called physiatrists, are specially trained to take a big-picture look at medical conditions and how they affect the things you need and want to do. Our goal is to help you become or stay as active, healthy and independent as possible. Ochsner’s board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians provide customized, patient-centered care in several programs throughout Louisiana and Mississippi.
Ochsner’s physical medicine and rehabilitation team includes fellowship-trained physicians with expertise in specialty areas, such as back and spine health, neuroscience and sports medicine. We work closely with other physicians and allied healthcare experts in multidisciplinary teams to create treatment plans tailored to your personal needs. Our holistic view of health allows us to choose treatment options that not only address your medical condition but also restore functional abilities and fit your lifestyle and goals.
The Ochsner Rehabilitation Hospital, one of our physical medicine and rehabilitation inpatient locations, was ranked No. 1 in Louisiana by Newsweek in 2022.
