My clinical practice in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation has been re-focused in 2019 to include mainly neuro-rehabilitation (including stroke rehabilitation), spasticity management, electromyography, and non-spinal musculoskeletal disorders.
I believe that physicians also have an important role in improving the quality of care for patients. Our current collaborative projects are focused on improving stroke rehabilitation access.
- Fascia – Current knowledge and future directions in Physiatry: Narrative Review
Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development-October 1, 2014
Abstract — Fascia can be considered part of the connective tissues that permeate the human body. However, in medical training, its definition is not clear, and even among specialists, its role is not completely understood. Physiatrists have a unique opportunity to add to the growing scientific and clinical knowledge about fascia, particularly about how this connective tissue network may apply clinically to musculoskeletal disorders. In this narrative review, the structure and function of fascia are discussed from the perspective of physiatry.
