Mosaic Life Care provides physical medicine and rehabilitation services for both inpatient and outpatient settings.

At Mosaic Life Care Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, board-certified physiatrists (doctors who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation) provide diagnostic and restorative care for patients experiencing a variety of disabilities, functional deficits or deterioration. Our team works with patients ages 10 and older to develop individualized and customized treatment programs for each person. This is done in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

  • Normal aging (i.e. back or neck pain)
  • Pulmonary/cardiac (i.e. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or Congestive Heart Failure)
  • Obesity
