What is a Physiatrist?


What is a physiatrist? So physiatry is the
short term or the shorthand term for the specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation. The
practitioners of physical medicine and rehabilitation are also called physiatrists. There’s also
controversy in the field about how to pronounce physiatry or physiatrist. I come from the
West Coast band, the Midwest and East Coast band can sometimes pronounce it as physiatrist
but it it can also cause confusion because some people will confuse it with psychiatry,
it’s spelled with a ‘p’ or podiatry. They’re both also spelled with ‘p’s’. So it
can be it can be an easy handle because it’s a lot fewer syllables than physical medicine
and rehabilitation but it can cause some confusion and it’s not widely known.
