Welcome to the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. We serve adults and children to diagnose and treat pain and restore function lost through injury, illness or other disabling conditions. Penn State Hershey specialists are experts in disorders of nerve, muscle, and bone that affect how patients move. These disorders include a wide range of problems from shoulder injuries to spinal cord injuries.
Our department was founded on July 1, 2010. Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital on Old West Chocolate Avenue is the primary site for our practice.
The field of physical medicine and rehabilitation is in an exciting time of growth and development in central Pennsylvania.
