Dr. Brown has National and State board certification in Physical Medicine and we are fully equipped for Physical Medicine treatment in our office. We combine Physical Medicine with Chiropractic and Acupuncture for the fastest results. We are the only office we know of that combines all the treatments in this manner.
The Difference Between Physical Medicine and Physical Therapy
The terms “Physical Medicine” and “Physical Therapy” refer to the same type of treatment. The Arizona State Board of Physical Therapy has legislation in place that does not allow other practitioners of Physical Therapy modalities to advertise them as Physical Therapy. However, Physical Medicine does refer to the same procedures that are performed at a standard Physical Therapy office. If you have insurance coverage for Physical Therapy, it will normally cover Physical Medicine done in our office.
