AICA Snellville 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 Chiropractors, radiologists, and physical therapists.
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 Chiropractors work jointly with anesthesiologists to bring you game-changing chiropractic intervention and spinal procedures. We can take you 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.
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 the pain, in some cases for an indefinite period.
But there’s still more. Our Snellville Chiropractors 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.
