We start with diagnostic testing to assess your condition after a car accident, which provides the baseline for your treatment. Once the tests have been performed and reviewed, our team of medical experts will develop an individualized treatment plan to help you fully recover from your injuries.
AICA College Park uses state-of-the-art diagnostic and imaging equipment which allows your doctors to provide you with the most accurate assessment of your injuries. With the use of X-ray, MRI, and CT scans we can is assess the extent and location of your injuries and establish the baseline for your personalized treatment plan.
We begin with X-rays to identify injuries sustained to bones or joints, as well as injuries that need urgent attention. MRIs allow us to go deeper than the initial X-ray, providing a 3D view of your body’s soft tissue structures. An X-ray cannot determine if soft tissue damage has occured , so an MRI is used for all injuries are properly diagnosed.
A hard-to-find injury, such as hairline fracture can be diagnosed with a CT scan. Fluoroscopy is an imaging machine that shows a continuous X-ray image of the body in real time, which allows your doctor to determine if your bones are in their proper positions. This machine can also be used while your body is in motion to determine if your joints are functioning properly.
Your recovery is important so our team knows that they play a vital role in getting you back on your feet. Chiropractic care treats a number of things from accident injuries and alleviates pain by carefully adjusting the bones of your skeletal system, relieving pressure places on blood vessels and nerves.
Our AICA College Park team is composed of experienced chiropractors who perform spinal decompression, cold laser therapy, and physiotherapy. Spinal decompression alleviates the pressure on the spinal cord, which can be damaged or shifted out of position in an accident. This allows doctors to treat painful car accident injuries like spinal joint damage and herniated discs.
Cold laser therapy relieves pain from a vast amount of injuries by increasing blood flow to the affected area, promoting the healing process. Physiotherapy aids in regaining functionality and range of motion by releasing tight muscles and joints. Depending on your injuries, you may experience pain relief through ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation, heat, and ice.
At AICA College Park, our physical therapists work collaboratively in our inclusive practice with our chiropractors and orthopedists to give you the best care to ensure your total recovery. We offer physical therapy in three areas which include medical, pre-surgical and post-surgical. After an accident, medical physical therapy is used to strengthen the body and improve range of motion to promote healing.
While less than one percent of our patients end up needing surgery, pre-surgery physical therapy will prepare your body for the recovery process after surgery. It also strengthens your muscles and joints, reduces pain and inflammation, and helps you restore your range of motion. Our post-surgery physical therapists aid in your recovery process by strengthening your muscles and joints as they heal. They work closely with your surgeon to ensure your care plan fits your specific needs.
AICA College Park merges medical, chiropractic, orthopedic, and physical therapy services to give you everything you need to get on the road to recovery after a car accident. You can speak with our College Park chiropractors or schedule your appointment at our clinic by calling (404) 592-0319.
