Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum

-Unspecified term used in classification when clinician is sure about the disease related to some system in body but it is not fitting in the definition of already existing diseases in classification or all criteria are not fulfilled by patient illness.

-Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PMR) is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. Physical medicine and rehabilitation involves the management of disorders that alter the function and performance of the patient.

-Emphasis is placed on the optimization of function through the combined use of medications, physical modalities, physical training with therapeutic exercise, movement & activities modification, adaptive equipment and assistive device, orthotics (braces), prosthesis, and experiential training approaches.

Hope this will help you,

Wish you Good Health
