Anything that affects a person's mobility can be prevented, diagnosed and treated by a physiatrist. This specialist, however, is not restricted to addressing problems of the musculoskeletal system, but they also address limitations arising from other diseases that have caused or can cause damage to movement, such as sequelae of a stroke.

In many cases, proper physiatric therapy can prevent corrective surgeries and even help people in post-traumatic rehabilitation.

If you need to, seek a physiatrist at a DaVita Serviços Médicos' Unit.
