In July 2012, Spectrum Medical Group announced that Medical Rehabilitation Associates would become part of its organization and formed a new, Medical Rehabilitation Division of Spectrum Medical Group. The division offers a broad range of electrodiagnostics and pain management services.
The Medical Rehabilitation Division has offices in Lewiston, Brunswick, and Rockport and provides pain management and rehabilitation services to patients across mid coast, southern, and central Maine. The mission of the division is to provide integrated, rehabilitation services that promote physical, behavioral, and occupational health.
The physicians of the Medical Rehabilitation Division are members of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Maine Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Maine Medical Association, Maine Osteopathic Association, American Academy of Pain Medicine, American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, and International Injection Society.
Spectrum medical rehabilitation physicians, also known as physiatrists, serve as integral members of a patient's care team and work closely with primary care providers to create effective care plans that patients are able to follow. Physiatrists are specialists and, therefore, require referral from a primary care or other specialty provider.
