Episode 1: What is Rehabilitation Medicine and How Can it Help Me?
Whether you've suffered an illness, injury or are recovering from surgery, you might need rehabilitation. Rehabilitation medicine helps restore strength and improve quality of life.
At Weill Cornell Medicine's physical rehabilitation center in New York City, our physiatrists help patients alleviate back, joint, neck and pelvic pain. We also provide rehabilitation services for those who have sustained sports injuries or who have suffered from neurological disorders, cancer or stroke. We aim to maximize our patients' function so they can get back to their daily routines and favorite activities.
In the inaugural episode of Weill Cornell Medicine's Back to Health podcast, Dr. Joel Stein and Dr. Michael O'Dell discuss rehab medicine, who it can help, and how it can maximize a patients' function so they can get back to their daily routines and favorite activities.
