Since 2016, Luther Manor has partnered with Symbria Solutions to provide rehabilitation services to patients and residents. In 2018, Luther Manor proudly announced exciting new physiatrist services for all residents and patients, in partnership with Integrated Rehab Consultants (IRC).
What is a physiatrist?
A physiatrist is a medical doctor who has completed training in the specialty of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. They are able to diagnose and treat pain as a result of an injury, illness or disabling condition.
What value will a physiatrist bring to rehab patients?
Previously, pain associated with a patient’s physical therapy was diagnosed and treated by the patient’s primary physician. Going forward, IRC will be able to provide the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment while remaining in constant communication with primary physicians. Their close relationship patients including initial evaluation, regular monitoring and follow-up will help reduce readmissions.
The relationship between Symbria (physical therapy provider), IRC (physiatrists) and primary doctors means increased communication, faster care, greater patient satisfaction and better outcomes for all Luther Manor rehab patients.
