Meet Our New Physicians: Dr. Madouna Hanna, Physiatrist and Dr. Chitra Kodery, Family and Sports Medicine, Rutgers Clinical Affiliates at New Bridge Medical Center.

As the population of America ages, and more people survive conditions that once would have been fatal, and as the quality of life is an increasing concern, the fields of physiatry and sports medicine are moving to the forefront of medicine.

A physiatrist is a physician specializing in the treatment of acute and chronic pain and musculoskeletal disorders through non-invasive treatments. The specialist focuses on mitigating patients’ afflictions through drug therapy, assistive devices such as a brace or artificial limb, and diverse therapies such as heat and cold, electrotherapies, massage, biofeedback, traction, therapeutic exercise, and education. Specialists in sports medicine offer similar therapies for those suffering from sports injuires.
