    Emerging Specialty In Pakistan: FCPS In Physical Medicine And Rehabilitation, The Option Less Known

    There has been a growing demand for rehabilitation services in Pakistan in recent years, likely due to increasing prevalence of disability. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) is a branch of medicine which deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of functional impairments resulting from neuromusculoskeletal and other disorders. Physiatrists are physicians who specialize in the specialty of PMR. College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan started FCPS training in PMR in the late 1990s. There are various training institutes within and outside Pakistan which are accredited for FCPS training in PMR. There is a huge vacuum in this specialty in the country likely due to lack of awareness among health care providers. It is considered to be the specialty of the future due to its rapid growth potential, opportunities for sub specializations and unique skills. More information can be obtained from the website of Pakistan Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PSPMR).
