Many people think of physical therapy as something that only happens after a surgical procedure. However, pre-surgical physical therapy is an equally important part of recovering from a car accident. In fact, physical therapy after a car accident can prevent you from needing surgery in the first place. After an injury from a car accident, your body is starting its healing process. AICA Orthopedics supports your recovery and offers you guidance so your body can heal properly. Our diverse group of Atlanta Orthopedic Doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists work together to provide you with comprehensive care.
AICA Orthopedics aims to restore patients to pre-injury condition without surgery. Most of our patients do not require surgery and we only recommend surgery when necessary. When surgery is required, we opt for the least invasive surgical procedure. Physical therapy before surgery has several benefits. Physical therapy strengthens the muscles around joints to support them as they heal. Our physical therapists help you get your strength back as bones and soft tissue rebuild while working with you to restore range of motion. Pre-surgical physical therapy also reduces pain and minimizes inflammation. Pre-surgical physical therapy also prepares you for the recovery process that begins after a surgical procedure and helps you heal faster.
Pre-surgical physical therapy is a key component of ACIA Orthopedics comprehensive approach to treating car accident injuries. We begin by assessing your condition using advanced diagnostics. These diagnostics give our team of medical specialists a complete picture of the extent of your injuries. Our diagnostic equipment includes X-rays, CT scans, diagnostic ultrasounds, and MRIs. We have several MRI machines in our facilities including open MRIs. This state of the art imaging enables us to give you a thorough assessment while keeping you as comfortable as possible.
Once we review the results of your diagnostic tests, our orthopedic specialists work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan. You’ll have access to all of our experienced medical specialists. Our Orthopedic Doctors are available if a joint needs adjusting during your treatment process. Our team of licensed physical therapists will work to keep you out of surgery. If surgery is needed, we’ll refer you to an in-house orthopedic surgeon. This integration of all the specialties you need in one place is what sets AICA Orthopedics apart from other providers.
