Dr. Brian Chan is a second generation chiropractic physician who specializes in the treatment and management of whiplash injuries. In 2009, he became a graduate of the Spine Research Institute of San Diego's Whiplash and Brain Injury Traumatology program, which offers the most in-depth, science-based training available today covering the entire spectrum from the physics of motor vehicle crash to human biomechanics to diagnostics and management. In 2010, he completed the Advanced Certification in Whiplash and Brain Injury Traumatology, the highest achievement offered by the Spine Research Institute of San Diego (SRISD). Every November, he attend SRISD's scientific conference to stay abreast of the most recent literature relating to the treatment and management of whiplash injury.
Because of his interest in understanding occupant biomechanics in motor vehicle collisions, he pursued further training in traffic crash reconstruction and vehicle dynamics at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois in 2012. As an accident reconstructionist, he is able to better understand what happens when vehicles collide, the forces and energies transferred, and how the occupant may be exposed to injury. In 2014, he also participated in fully-instrumented live crash testing, conducting multiple tests in low speed vehicle to vehicle collisions. With this additional training in crash reconstruction, along with thorough clinical examination of the occupant and an understanding of risk factors as supported by the most recent published scientific literature, he is able to form a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for his patients.
Dr. Chan is co-owner of Back and Neck Pain Centers, with four locations in the Puget Sound area, offering chiropractic and massage services. He also performs IMEs, records reviews, and expert witness work through his consulting firm, Clinical Accident Reconstruction Experts, LLC. Dr. Chan has testified in areas including chiropractic care, accident reconstruction, and injury biomechanics.
