Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

When you suffer a disabling injury or illness, recovery can be physically and emotionally challenging. Physiatrists (physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists) at Rush are committed to treating the whole person, not just the health problem.

They offer a full range of services — and support — to help you to reach your personal rehabilitation goals, including the following:

  • Baclofen pump maintenance to help manage spasticity in clients with spinal injuries, multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions
  • Balance assessment and treatment
  • Acupuncture
  • Chronic pain treatment
  • Driving rehabilitation, which offers driving assessments, helps you continue driving safely and, if needed, helps you get back on the road after a disabling injury or illness
  • Electrodiagnostic services (EMGs and nerve conduction studies)
  • Movement disorders and spasticity clinics
  • Pediatric rehabilitation, including services for children who suffer severe burns
  • A prosthetics clinic, where specialists prescribe prosthetics and orthotics for people whose limbs have been amputated or damaged
  • A wheelchair clinic that evaluates people for motorized or standard lightweight wheelchairs, motorized scooters and cushions
