A physiatrist is a doctor who specializes in the rehabilitation and physiological treatment of patients with an illness or injury that affects movement.
These specialists have extensive knowledge of the nerves, muscles, bone, and brain. Physiatrists are also experts in pain medication.
Some common conditions that physiatrists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, neurological and spinal disorders and injuries, chronic pain disorders, like fibromyalgia, and musculoskeletal issues, like broken bones and torn muscles.
These physicians also often coordinate a team of other specialists in order to maximize the patient's recovery, such as occupational therapists, speech therapists, neurologists, orthopedists, and counselors.

I'm a nurse, and worked with Dr. Shoemaker 18 years ago. I was unfamiliar with what an osteopath did, but was desperate after years of sinus infections, a bout of pneumonia, and fatigue from fighting the sinus headaches. Two ENT's said I needed surgery, but could not say that it would take care of the problem. I tried Dr. Shoemaker and after a series of visits, I no longer needed surgery. I've been doing well since and made a complete recovery. I've referred several folks and they were also very happy with their results. No one even minded the travel time!
I started seeing Dr. Shoemaker about 17 yrs ago after an injury left me with severe back problems. I had 2 different "specialists" tell me I had no other choice but surgery. 17 yrs later I still haven't had surgery; and I am very close to a full recovery. My wife & I have retired to SC, but we still make the trip back to see him! It's worth it!
