Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (P M R)

Our Services


Rehabilitation is “a set of measures that assist individuals, who experience or are likely to experience disability, to achieve and maintain optimal functioning in interaction with their environments". It involves identification of a person’s problems and needs, relating the problems to relevant factors of the person and the environment, defining rehabilitation goals, planning and implementing the measures, and assessing the effects.

PMR, also known as Physiatry is about patient-centered care and maximizing independence and mobility with the goal of returning patients to their role in society. It is unique among medical fields in that the area of expertise addresses function of the whole patient, as compared with a focus on an organ system or systems.

At AIMS, a Rehabilitation Team is being set up to offer complete solutions to persons with disabilities. The overall functioning of the department will cover the areas depicted in the table with close collaboration among various medical and allied health specialties.
