Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, also known as physiatry, aims to restore and enhance functional ability for patients with physical impairments or disabilities affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons.
Monument Health’s physiatrists strive to maximize independence for daily activities and improve overall quality of life. We treat brain injuries, congenital and childhood-onset physical impairments, spine-related pain and dysfunction, occupational injuries, orthopedic and sports injuries and chronic pain.
Our pediatric physiatrists are trained to diagnose and design a custom treatment plan. Understanding the effects of conditions such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida or muscular dystrophy means we can ease discomfort and improve everyday movement and function for your child.
Our physiatrists work with a team of professionals who assist with occupational therapy, pain management, speech therapy and sports medicine.

What People Are Saying
Dr. Buck really took the time to explain to me what he thinks is going on. He listened to my explanation of how I feel and I have hope now that maybe I will be feeling better soon.
The staff is very attentive, and compassionate been going to dr.Mills for 10 years now, highly recommend him.
She (Dr. Sanders) is the best doctor we have been to so far. She was the one who realized my daughter had cerebral palsy after we had been telling her pediatrician for two years that there was something wrong.
