    SCI Physician board certification: USA

    Here is a website where you can find a list of physicians in your area who are board certified as a physiatrist or specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R):

    http://www.e-aapmr.org/imis/imisonli...dphys/find.cfm

    If you are also interested in a physician who has an additional board certification in Spinal Cord Medicine, you can do a search here by specific physician name (you cannot get a list unfortunately). This secondary board may be obtained by physicians with primary specialties other than just PM&R, including internal medicine, urology and some other specialties. You must register to do the search, but there is no fee:

    https://www.abms.org/WC/login.aspx

    This applies only to the USA and does not include other countries.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

            Need an SCI neurologist

            I need a neurologist who specializes in SCI in the Silver Spring MD or Washington DC area. The site you listed requires a name and I don't have one.

              Use this site to search by location for a physiatrist (not neurologists). You have to click on "search by map" to search by location. Why do you need a neurologist? Can't your primary care physician refer you?

              For this site, you can search for physicians (of all specialties) who are certified in SCI Medicine, but you do have to register to do this search. You can search only by location (state for example) if you so desire (read the directions).

                      There are already physiatrists in the UK, and much of the rest of the world as well, but they are rarely members of the AMERICAN Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation unless they did their training in the USA. There are a significantly smaller number of physiatrists per population in England though than in the USA or even other parts of Europe.

                      Here is the website for their professional association: http://www.bsrm.co.uk
