Najaah Hussain, MD is a board-certified physician who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). PM&R is a branch of medicine dedicated to restoring the functional ability and improving the quality of life for individuals who have been disabled as a result of a disease or injury. 

Dr. Hussain was born and raised in Michigan. She received her medical degree from Case Western University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. Following this, she completed residency in PM&R at Temple University Hospital | MossRehab in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she served as chief resident. MossRehab has been consistently ranked among the top 10 best rehabilitation hospitals in the nation.

Dr. Hussain focuses on helping adult patients with neurological conditions, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, and brain injury. Her expertise lies in diagnosing and treating spasticity, which is a common symptom affecting many patients with these neurological diseases. Patients with spasticity have involuntary muscle contractions, leading to muscle stiffness, tightness, and even pain, often resulting in limited movement and reduced functionality.

Augusta Physiatry, founded by Dr. Hussain, was created with the vision of serving as a comprehensive spasticity center for residents in the CSRA. Dr. Hussain works closely with her patients to design comprehensive, individualized treatment plans tailored to meet their specific needs. By integrating various therapeutic approaches, such as nerve and muscle injections along with occupational and physical therapy, she helps individuals overcome the challenges of living with spasticity. Dr. Hussain is excited to use her knowledge to help patients in her community. She resides in Evans, Georgia with her husband. 

 

If you or your loved one suffers from spasticity, please contact Augusta Physiatry to schedule an appointment to discuss your treatment options.
