Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation & Pain Management
Douglas J. Hendricks, MD
Douglas J. Hendricks, MD is a board-certified Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialist (physiatrist) who treats patients in the context of the whole person, rather than simply treating a particular problem. He specializes in the evaluation, diagnosis and nonsurgical treatment of conditions that result in spine and musculoskeletal pain. As a physiatrist, Dr. Hendricks works with his patients to accurately diagnose and effectively treat their pain utilizing non-surgical measures such as physical therapy, medications, brace prescription, chiropractic referral, and injections. If surgery is an option, discussion with or referral to one of our outstanding surgeons can be easily done. He also has training and expertise in electrodiagnostic testing.
Dr. Hendricks graduated summa cum laude from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, majoring in Biology, before attending the University of Wisconsin Medical School in Madison, Wisconsin. He completed his internship in Internal Medicine at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics in Madison, Wisconsin. He went on to complete his residency at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics, specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Dr. Hendricks has over 24 years of experience and commitment allows him to help hundreds of patients each year improve their quality of life and physical function. He takes time to carefully listen to each patient’s concerns and help to pinpoint the cause of their pain, before thoroughly discussing all diagnostic and treatment options.
Dr. Hendricks now practices at the NeuroSpine Center of Wisconsin, a multispecialty private group practice providing comprehensive world-class integrated care to individuals suffering from spine and musculoskeletal injuries, that can lead to acute or chronic pain. In addition to physiatrists, the clinic houses orthopedic spine surgeons, a neurosurgeon, an Anesthesia Pain specialist, and Physical Therapists.
