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 believes in providing an all inclusive care philosophy to our patients through our delivery of results in medical integration. Our treatment facility offers a complete staff of medical doctors, orthopedic specialists, chiropractors, and physical therapists, working together under one roof to provide you with the best care in one location. This allows our patients to receive the complete care they deserve without the hassle and extra expenses of traveling to multiple offices. 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.
This is the most general type of physical therapy that applies to most individuals needing PT services. If you don’t need surgery, didn’t have surgery recently, and are trying to avoid surgery, medical PT is the type of treatment for you.LEARN MORE
If you’re preparing for surgery or are trying everything in your power to avoid surgery, pre-surgical PT is what you need. This can help in your pre-emptive preparation before surgery to increase joint mobility and muscle strength, and it will encourage cell growth to help speed up your healing after surgery.LEARN MORE
Once you’ve had surgery to repair a broken bone or an injured muscle, ligament, or tendon, you need post-surgical PT to regain strength, range of motion, and health in your previously injured area. Post-surgical physical therapy will improve circulation and help your body heal faster, while also increasing your mobility and minimizing your pain.LEARN MORE
