    Dr. Jerry Schwarzbach is an Azalea physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation, in which he is board certified.

    “Exercise… fitness… good general health. Participation in sports can give you all of that, along with a great deal of fun and satisfaction,” Schwarzbach explains. “The catch? People can get hurt, they can overdo and problems can suddenly occur or develop over time. It is so enjoyable to help a person recover — whether from a sports injury, a nerve or nueromusculoskeletal problem.”
