As part of our commitment to provide you with comprehensive and integrated treatment options following an accident or injury, AICA Orthopedics offers physiotherapy at all of our locations.
By providing physiotherapy alongside orthopedic and chiropractic care, our Atlanta Orthopedic Doctors are able to easily communicate in order to seamlessly coordinate your recovery.
Physiotherapy helps patients affected by injury regain functionality and range of motion through the manual release of tight muscles and joints, in connection with a personalized regimen of therapeutic exercises. Physiotherapy can also be used to address issues related to cardiovascular, respiratory, and neurological problems.
During your first appointment with AICA Orthopedics, our Atlanta Orthopedic Doctors, or physiatrists, will sit down with you to determine the state of your medical condition and create a customized treatment plan based on your needs and goals. Our specialists take into consideration your individual abilities and may ask you to describe your symptoms, daily activities, and personal health objectives.
After learning about your medical history and any details related to your injuries, our medical team will perform a physical examination. If your condition requires further investigation or visual confirmation, we have state of the art imaging and diagnostic equipment in-house, meaning that your X-ray, MRI, or CT scan is just a few steps away.
Once we have the full picture of your condition, you’ll be provided with a diagnosis and recommended treatment plan. This may include regular sessions with a physical therapist, chiropractic care, nutritional advice, and exercises to practice at home. Your Orthopedist may also suggest medical therapies that use cold, heat, electricity, or sound waves to reduce pain and heal injuries.
Many people seek out physiotherapy following a car accident or injury. Working with a physical therapist and performing exercises specific to your condition can help alleviate joint and muscle pain while supporting your body’s healing process.
Bodily movement and proper function can be inhibited by injury, disease, environmental factors, or even simply aging. As a science-based medical practice, physiotherapy is an excellent way to achieve healing and holistic wellness, whatever your age, circumstance, or level of health. At AICA Orthopedics, our physiotherapy treatment can help you manage current pain, prevent future disease, and maintain good health throughout your life.
Physiotherapy seeks to address the whole person and encourages the participation of patients in their own healing journeys. As medical doctors who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), physiatrists draw on their understanding of how the muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems work together. Rather than just focusing on the symptoms of injury or illness, Orthopedic Doctors are trained to identify the root cause and are qualified to design a comprehensive wellness program for treatment and rehabilitation.
Whether the goal is to make daily activities easier or to help you recover from a car accident faster, physiotherapy can improve patients’ quality of life by increasing strength, flexibility, endurance, coordination, and balance. Through the use of targeted exercises, manual manipulation, and other modalities, the physiotherapy team at AICA Orthopedics can facilitate your body’s innate ability to heal itself, helping you recover from your car accident and maintain lifelong wellness.
