Auto Injuries and Treatments
6 million car accidents occur each year in the United States. Car accidents are scary, dangerous, and just bad news for everyone involved. No one can ever be prepared for a car accident. The good news is that proper education and preparation can help avoid further pain and expenses down the line.

A comprehensive therapy plan is the best method for treating injuries caused by car accidents, because these therapies treat multiple regions of the body. This may include a series of treatments including interventional pain medicine, posture control, neck and spine exercises, various injection-based protocols, and other plans that a MAPS physician may recommend.
Treatments for Auto Accidents
When someone is in pain, it’s hard to travel from clinic to clinic to visit different doctors with different levels of expertise. For this reason, our clinics are all prepped and designed to offer a range of treatments and therapies for a number of injuries and conditions to best meet the needs of our patients.
Treatments may include:
Interventional Pain Medicine
Invasive surgery is becoming a thing of the past. As a leader in innovative, minimally-invasive pain treatments, our double-board certified physicians are trained in Interventional Pain and Anesthesia – making us the most qualified team for your needs.
Many patients respond positively to our injection-based treatments which offer the benefit of rapid pain relief as well as the benefits of being non-surgical. Depending on the location of the injury, your MAPS physician may recommend an injection-based treatment plan.
Responsible Medication Management
While the opioid crisis has made a negative impact on reducing the pain of Americans, there is still a place for responsible medication management that is closely monitored and observed if it provides a benefit to our patients.
Some patients may find improvement through a customized treatment plan that may include stretching, strengthening, core work, or a number of other treatments. If appropriate, a MAPS physician may provide a referral for PT.
Massage therapy, especially when combined with other treatments, can be an effective outlet for reducing muscle pain, tension, and stress. If appropriate, a MAPS physician may provide a referral for massage therapy for a patient.
This method helps to rehabilitate and improve the mobility of the joints by manipulating and exercising them. Many whiplash and concussion victims find this therapy to be effective in reducing their pain. For this reason, a MAPS physician may refer a patient to one of our trusted chiropractic partners in the area.
