AICA Ortho & Spine is a full service spinal and orthopedic procedure center, featuring the latest in advanced technological imaging equipment. We specialize in diagnosis and treatment of head and spine and joint injury – from your neck to the pelvis, knees and beyond.
This includes all of the issues that may come with acute and chronic spine and joint debilitation, such as headaches, pain, motor impairment, neurological issues and assessment. Our team includes spinal doctors, orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists and neurosurgeons.
We Help You From Your Top Down
Because 80 percent of headaches result from issues in the cervical spine, after an injury you may need treatment that addresses the nerve, motor and arterial functioning in your neck.
Injuries and chronic conditions in your thoracic spine can also affect the rest of your nervous system and the clear functioning of your hands, arms, shoulders, respiratory system and diaphragm.
Because your spine is a unified system that not only supports your entire skeletal frame, but also is the protective tower of your spinal cord – from which a huge number of your body’s nerve roots stem – keeping it in fine working order is among our highest concerns.
Our exclusive doctors of chiropractic work jointly with anesthesiologists to bring you game changing chiropractic intervention and spinal procedures. We can take your from assessment and low impact treatment using graduated methods that are the most likely to remove pain and ease injured tissue with the least amount of invasive techniques.
Our surgeons do everything they can to help you avoid surgery. In fact, only about 1 percent of our patients ever need it.
Part of the reason is because of our step approach to care. It comes down to this: We don’t treat you if you don’t need it. And if you do, we give you just the minimum that you require to get better; we know that your body will do the rest.
But if your back doesn’t respond to adjustments, exercise programming and medical physical therapy that includes cold laser treatment, our spinal anesthesiologists can give you a quick and virtually painless facet block injection, and if need be follow that with radiofrequency ablation or an epidural performed under local anaesthetic and with X-ray fluoroscopy, which limits the intervention required.
These measures can help us find the source of your pain and stop pain, in some cases for an indefinite period.
But there’s still more. Our doctors have intensive procedures up their white coats that are still short of invasive surgeries, such as balloon kyphoplasty. This incredible technique repairs the crushed body of a vertebrae with cement and a balloon, relieving high amounts of pain and restoring natural height to the spine.
We do it here at AOS – and we can do it for you, too.
When you’re facing an orthopedic procedure, you can turn to AOS. Our orthopedic surgeons provide you with care for fractures, which includes casting and monitoring. We also heal joint dislocation, providing reduction, follow up treatment and intraarticular joint injections.
We may be the only clinic with two in-house MRI machines and a CT machine, which allows us to have extremely fast patient turnaround time that not only get our doctors the information they need to help you, but can even fit your busy schedule.
We’ve procured these costly devices that many competing clinics don’t have to offer you everything you’ll need at a single location.
When you combine the excellence in our medical staff with our cutting edge imaging, you’ll get quick visits the move to the heart of your injuries or chronic pain and reach results. All of our career doctors have specialized exclusively in their areas of expertise in both their residencies and fellowships – giving our practice an edge over other clinics, and you with some of the best treatment you can find in Greater Atlanta.
Sometimes a doctor’s physical checkup and imaging analysis isn’t enough. If you’re experiencing certain kinds of joint, muscle or nerve pain, you may be in need of diagnostics.
We feature the standards that you’ll find at every major hospital, which includes EMG (muscle) and NVC (nerve) testing.
The AOS Difference
Our multi-specialty approach combines a variety of disciplines giving you fast, effective and life changing care. We also provide you with third party billing and accept most insurance plans.
And, if you were in an accident and cannot reach us, we’ll provide you with transportation to reach us – to get you the treatment you deserve.
