The Dietitians in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (DPM&R) sub-unit is a resource for dietetic professionals providing MNT for people with loss of function due to illness, injury or surgery. The goals of rehabilitation are to reach and maintain the highest possible level of function and quality of life and prevent secondary complications. Nutrition has a strong role in achieving these goals. Services are provided in a variety of settings including acute hospitals, sub-acute rehabilitation facilities, skilled-care nursing homes, home health, clinics and private practice. There is great potential for research in nutrition for the variety of conditions treated in rehabilitation.

Conditions treated include: Dysphagia, Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Sport Injuries, Amputation, Osteoporosis, Cardiovascular and Pulmonary  Rehabilitation, Orthopedics - Joint Reconstruction, Wound Care and Parkinson’s

DPM&R strongly encourages DMNT DPG members to subscribe to our DPM&R Electronic Mailing List (EML). Please note that the DPM&R EML is a separate EML from the DMNT general EML. It is a great forum to network with colleagues, post questions, and share new research pertaining to the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. You can "opt in" to the DPM&R EML through your DMNT profile.
