AICA Tucker’s services are unique because of our complete medical integration results in delivering all-inclusive care to our patients. Our clinic features a complete staff of medical doctors, orthopedic specialists, chiropractors, and physical therapists, all working together at one injury treatment practice. This allows AICA Tucker’s patients to receive the complete care they need at one center, rather than losing time and money by visiting multiple single-discipline locations.
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.
The state-of-the-art diagnostic and imaging equipment used at AICA Tucker helps your Chiropractors make a detailed assessment of your injuries. We use X-ray, MRI, and CT scans to establish the baseline for your personalized treatment plan, which is based on the extent and location of your injuries.
We start 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. Soft tissue damage can’t be detected by an X-ray, so an MRI ensures all injuries are diagnosed and treated. A CT scan can diagnose hard-to-find injuries, such as hairline fractures.
Fluoroscopy imaging shows a continuous X-ray image of the body in real time, which helps your doctor verify that your bones are in their proper positions. We can also use fluoroscopy while your body is in motion to determine if your joints are functioning properly.
The orthopedic team at AICA Tucker treats your skeletal system and its the soft tissue connections of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Their extensive experience in accident injury treatment will get you on the road to recovery no matter what you’re experiencing, including spinal and joint injuries, dislocations, bone fractures, and more. Our orthopedists provide treatment options for noninvasive solutions to surgery, should it be necessary.
Our chiropractors play a critical role in your recovery. Chiropractic care treats accident injuries and alleviates pain by carefully adjusting the bones of your skeletal system, relieving pressure places on blood vessels and nerves. The services provided by AICA Tucker’s experienced chiropractic team include spinal decompression, cold laser therapy, and physiotherapy.
Spinal decompression relieves spinal cord pressure, 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 variety of injuries by increasing blood flow to the affected area, promoting the healing process. Physiotherapy helps you regain 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.
AICA Tucker offers three categories of physical therapy: medical, pre-surgical, and post-surgical. Our physical therapists work collaboratively with our chiropractors and orthopedists to give you the best care and ensure your total recovery.
After an accident, medical physical therapy strengthens the body and improves range of motion to promote healing. While less than 1 percent of AICA Tucker 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 therapist’s 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 Tucker 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 a Chiropractor or schedule your appointment at our Snellville clinic by calling (404) 592-1186.
