These procedures are performed by board certified private physician specialists who are credentialed to the Kent Hospital medical staff and have full access to the Kent Hospital Department of Surgery.

Interventional Spine Physiatry and Pain Management Services

Physiatry, also known as physical medicine and rehabilitation, is a field of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis and treatments for the musculoskeletal system;

  • Muscles.
  • Bones.
  • Nerves.
  • Ligaments.
  • Tendons.
  • Other structures, and diseases and conditions that affect a person’s ability to function in a normal capacity.
Kent Hospital’s interventional physiatrists treat pain using anti-inflammatory injections into the spine and pelvis, guided by a specially equipped x-ray.

Many musculoskeletal pain conditions, including back, neck and joint problems, may be managed over time through conservative treatment using a variety of pain modalities and customized programs to enhance mobility and avoid surgery. Physiatry may also be used to optimize a patient's condition pre or post-surgery.
