Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, also called physiatry or shortened to PM&R, is the branch of medicine concerned with preventing, diagnosing and treating diseases, disorders and injuries such as strokes, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and musculoskeletal issues.
Our providers prescribe rehabilitation services for inpatients and outpatients with brain or spinal cord injury, strokes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, arthritis, burns, amputations, orthopedic problems, and other conditions of the musculoskeletal system associated with pain and disability. Patients requiring intensive inpatient rehabilitation services are cared for at the Miland E. Knapp Rehabilitation Center.
This is a hospital-based clinic owned by Hennepin Healthcare. Many insurance plans pay for health care services provided in a hospital-based clinic differently than those provided in a doctor’s office. Your insurance may require that you meet your annual deductible and/or require that you pay a percentage of the bill rather than just an office visit co-payment. You should check with your insurance company if you have any questions. Read the Frequently asked questions about hospital-based clinics to learn more.
