During the assessment phase of your treatment, we ask several questions to accurately determine the right program for you. Note that you will be asked to provide your complete medical history. We usually require the following information:
|Where You Were Sitting
The Speed at Which You Were Traveling
Where Your Car Was Hit (from Behind, Head on, etc.)
|Whether You Were Wearing a Lap and/or Shoulder Belt
Whether You Were Able to Brace Yourself before the Collision
If You Hit Anything inside the Car
A whiplash injury is one of the most common injuries you can get from a car collision. It occurs when muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints are overstretched or torn. With the information you've provided, our chiropractors will create a program tailored to your condition and needs.
At Malchar Chiropractic Wellness Center, we only employ certified chiropractors. One of them is Dr. Victoria Malchar, a physician who has had advanced training in whiplash and brain injury traumatology at the Spine Research Institute of San Diego. Before building your program, she will first examine the extent of your injury.
