In brief: REad below

Physical medicine and rehabilition (pm&r) concerns bringing a person to his or her individual highest level of function regardless of the underlying illness or disability.
Most pm&r speicialists (physicatrist) specialise in particular disorders such as spinal cord or brain injury, nerve injury or musculosckeletal injury, or occupational health, or children's physical problems.
