Car Accident

In the aftermath of a car accident, you are likely experiencing stress over what to do with a car in need of repair, dealing with insurance companies, and scheduling medical appointments. When it comes to taking care of yourself after a car accident, you can trust the team at AICA Orthopedics in Snellville to utilize our knowledge and skills in diagnosing and treating all manner of car accident injuries.

It can be easy to put off going to the doctor if you don’t have any visible injuries after a car accident, but car accidents often come with hidden injuries and symptoms that can take hours or even days to fully appear. At AICA Orthopedics, our general rule of thumb is that if your car sustained any damage in the accident then your body likely did too. That’s why it is important to seek out medical care after a car accident, no matter how small or insignificant the collision might have seemed at the time. Minor rear-end collisions can cause enough force that leads to car accident injuries like whiplash, muscle sprains, and damage to your neck and spine.

Slip and Fall

Long after the embarrassment has faded, the pain from a slip and fall accident like losing your footing and colliding with the ground may linger. Everyday places you visit like stores, restaurants, and even streets and sidewalks have the potential to cause serious bodily harm due to ground-level hazards you might not notice until it’s too late. When you suffer a slip and fall accident, it’s tempting to brush it off and act as if everything is okay. However, it is important to get checked out by an orthopedic doctor for slip and fall injury treatment as soon as possible.

You may notice some symptoms of a slip and fall accident right away, like scrapes or bruises, or even a sprained or fractured bone. Other internal injuries might take longer for symptoms to appear, and continuing along your daily routines may cause more serious damage if not treated sooner. Falls can commonly cause sprains and fractures that can lead to chronic pain and discomfort if not treated in a timely manner. Shoulder and knee dislocations are common when that area of the body takes the brunt of the fall and absorbs the blow, which can lead to soft tissue and nerve damage. Hip dislocations and fractures are also common, especially in older adults. Head and back injuries can also have a lasting impact if not treated right away.

Workplace Injuries

If you’ve been injured on the job then it’s important that you find quality, competent injury doctors to assist you with your treatment as well as your claim. Accidents and injuries can occur in workplaces where the best safety measures and standards are in place, and they can cause minor or major damage to your body and your ability to effectively do your job. The most common type of injuries sustained on the job are cuts, bruises, soreness, sprains, and tears. You may develop passive work injuries like carpal tunnel or back pain, or sustain a muscle tear or joint dislocation from a fall. No matter the type of workman’s comp injury, our team of injury doctors is here to help.

Workplace injuries require a delicate balance of medical examinations, documentation, and conversations with your employer and human resources department. Call to schedule an appointment with our team of injury doctors after any type of workplace injury, no matter how large or small, so you can begin documenting your medical care. Workman’s comp is a great way to offset the costs of medical expenses for your injury and can even replace lost wages if you are unable to work due to the injury. Our team of orthopedic doctors and physical therapists can help with a wide variety of workplace accidents and injuries and provide comprehensive, individualized treatment plans that will help you heal and move you toward a speedy recovery.
