Accelerated recovery and return to prior functional level is the main goal of treating our patients.  A complete physiatric (physical medicine and rehabilitation) evaluation is conducted by Dr. Cruz-Banting.  A thorough assessment of your neuromusculoskeletal structure including gait (walking/ambulation) posture, strength, range of motion, balance, coordination and other orthopedic and neurological status, is carefully done . After that an individualized therapy (physical/occupational) prescription  will be carried out by the therapists/assistants.

This physiatric evaluation is important when you suffered from an injury, recovering from surgery/neurological disease, or suffering from acute/chronic pain.
