How Can an Orthopedic Specialist Help Me Recover from an Auto Accident? Atlanta, GA
people worried with cars after an accident

Auto accidents can be a traumatic experience, both mentally and physically. Even if the accident was minor, it can still cause significant injuries that require medical attention. One of the most common types of injuries that people suffer from in an auto accident is orthopedic injuries. These injuries can range from simple sprains and strains to more severe injuries like fractures and dislocations. If you have been in an auto accident and have suffered an orthopedic injury, you need Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians on your rehabilitation team.

What Does an Orthopedic Specialist Do?

An orthopedic specialist is a medical professional who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of conditions related to the musculoskeletal system. This includes bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Orthopedic specialists can help patients recover from a wide range of injuries and conditions, including those related to auto accidents.

When you visit an orthopedic specialist from Ortho Sports & Spine Physicians after an auto accident, they will perform a thorough examination to assess the extent of your injuries. This may include X-rays, MRI scans or other imaging tests to help diagnose the injury accurately. Once the orthopedic specialist has a clear understanding of the injury, they will develop a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

These treatment plans can include:

Physical Therapy

One primary way that an orthopedic specialist can help you recover from an auto accident is through physical therapy. Physical therapy involves a series of exercises and treatments designed to improve your range of motion, strength and flexibility. It can also help reduce pain and inflammation, improve circulation and promote healing.

Medications and Injections

Another way an orthopedic specialist can help you recover is through medication. Depending on the severity of your injury, the specialist may prescribe pain medication, anti-inflammatory medication or muscle relaxants to help manage your symptoms. We can also perform joint injections to reduce inflammation and pain.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair an orthopedic injury sustained in an auto accident. Our orthopedic specialists are highly trained in minimally invasive endoscopic surgical procedures related to the musculoskeletal system. If surgery is required, your orthopedic specialist will work closely with you to explain the procedure, answer any questions you may have and ensure that you are fully prepared for the surgery.

Professional Collaboration

If you are seeing other doctors or healthcare providers, such as a chiropractor or physical therapist, we will collaborate with them to create a complete treatment plan that best suits you. This way, you will receive consistent and high-quality care from all your healthcare providers, which will help you get better faster.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
