Abstract

Returning injured World War II soldiers to battle-ready status helped establish physiatry as a specialty. The parallel of returning an athlete to activity underscores a close relationship between sports medicine and physiatry. In addition, the musculoskeletal focus of physiatry has always complemented sports medicine. Frank Krusen, MD, who coined the term "physiatrist" in 1938, was also a team physician for Temple University.
