Getting People Back to Work

When a workplace injury puts an employee on the sidelines, it's important to have immediate access to qualified physicians who can diagnose various musculoskeletal conditions quickly and accurately. Musculoskeletal Resources (MSR) and the independently owned practices that we support can help.

Like all licensed physicians, physiatrists complete four years of medical school, plus an additional four years of residency training, and many go on to complete fellowships in various specialties. In order to become a board-certified physiatrist, physicians must then pass comprehensive tests (oral and written) administered by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPM&R). Because physiatrists are uniquely trained in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal pain and injury, they're a great first step on the path to recovery after a workplace injury.
