Car accident injuries can be devastating and traumatic. A serious accident can result in injuries that will change the course of life. Fortunately, with the right medical team, the vast majority of car accident injuries can be effectively treated allowing accident victims to recover and move on with a healthy and active life.

Statistically, the most common car accident injuries fall into these 7 categories:

  • Whiplash and Neck Pain
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Herniated or Bulging Discs in the Back
  • Dislocated Shoulder
  • Dashboard Knee
  • Muscle Stiffness and Soreness
  • Concussions

While these are not considered life threatening injuries, without immediate medical care from qualified physicians with experience with auto accident injuries, any one of these 7 common injuries can turn into nagging pain and discomfort that will impact you for the rest of your life.

That’s why more and more auto accident injury patients are turning to MAPS Centers for Pain Control, Chicago’s leader in providing top quality car accident injury treatments.

Multidisciplinary auto injury treatments in Chicago can give patients the results they need and deserve. Here is a more detailed look at the outpatient injection based therapies patients can get treated with:

Trigger Point Injections:

Trigger point injections can be beneficial for car accident injuries because they target specific areas of muscle tension and pain. Injuries sustained in car accidents often lead to muscle spasms and trigger points, which are localized areas of tightness and tenderness within the muscle tissue. These trigger points can contribute to ongoing pain and stiffness.

Trigger point injections involve the administration of a local anesthetic, sometimes combined with a corticosteroid, directly into the trigger point. This helps to alleviate pain and relax the muscle, promoting healing and restoring normal function. By reducing muscle tension and improving range of motion, trigger point injections can aid in the recovery process following car accident injuries.

Facet Joint Injections:

Facet joint injections can provide relief for car accident injuries by targeting the small joints located along the spine, called facet joints. These joints can become inflamed and painful due to trauma sustained during a car accident, leading to ongoing discomfort and limited mobility.

Facet joint injections administer a blend of a local anesthetic and corticosteroid directly into the targeted facet joint. This medication helps to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain in the affected area. By targeting the source of pain, facet joint injections can provide significant relief, allowing patients to participate more comfortably in rehabilitation and daily activities.

These injections can be particularly helpful for patients experiencing persistent back or neck pain following a car accident.

Cervical Epidural Injections:

Cervical epidural injections can be beneficial for car accident injuries by targeting inflammation and pain in the cervical (neck) region of the spine. Injuries sustained in car accidents, such as whiplash or herniated discs, can cause inflammation and the compression of nerves in the cervical spine, leading to pain, stiffness, and limited mobility.

Cervical epidural injections involve the injection of a combination of a local anesthetic and a corticosteroid medication into the epidural space around the spinal cord and affected nerve roots. This medication helps to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain, providing relief for patients experiencing symptoms related to car accident injuries.

By targeting the source of pain and inflammation, cervical epidural injections can help improve mobility, decrease pain levels, and facilitate participation in rehabilitation activities.
