Dr. Egan has been an auto accident/personal injury chiropractor serving the Marin County, San Rafael area for years. Dr. has helped many people regain their health after suffering a whiplash auto injury. It is for this reason that Dr. Egan is the go-to choice for medical doctor and attorney referrals of their patients/clients who need immediate evaluation and care that is properly documented and the most effective in gaining maximum recovery. Dr. Egan understands how a proper examination and chiropractic care can not only help with immediate pain and function but can help prevent chronic pain in the future. Dr. Egan works with a network of medical chiropractors, physical therapists and pain management chiropractors in the local San Rafael area. This serves as added support for specificity, documentation and treatment of any level of auto accident injury.

As a result of suffering an auto accident injury the musculoskeletal system can be knocked out of its normal alignment and one may experience extreme pain, while others may experience little to no immediate pain. In either case, it may be the start to problems in the future. Once the bones move out of their normal alignment from a car accident, it can lead to a decreased range of normal motion, pinch vital nerves, and lead to chronic pain and arthritic changes in the spine. Utilizing proper diagnostics, Dr. Egan will be able to identify your underlying injuries and create a custom treatment program to support your body's natural healing process.

If you have recently been in an auto accident, there are some important decisions you have to make. It can be very important to make these decisions in a timely manner and not to delay. We look forward to working with you and providing help, guidance and a road to recovery with better health.

  • Q: Should I See An Attorney Before I See My Chiropractor? 
    A: It is important to get checked out by the doctor first. That way the findings from your exam will allow you the information you need in order to decide if an attorney is necessary. If necessary, we can refer you to a reputable and qualified attorney. 

  • Q: What If My Car Sustained Only Minor Damage? 
    A: Documented studies done by Charles Carroll, M.D., Paul McAtee, M.D. and Lee Riley, M.D. revealed that: "The amount of damage to the automobile bears little relation to the force applied to the cervical spine (neck) of the occupants."

    In other words, the damage to the passengers is not necessarily directly related to the damage to the vehicle. 

  • Q: If I Need Treatment For This Injury, Do I Have To Pay For It Myself? 
    A: No, only in very rare circumstances does the patient pay for his care as he goes. Our office provides care "on credit" when patients are represented by an attorney. Some car insurance policies have what is called "Med Pay." This means that medical bills will be paid at 100% up to a certain limit. My office can assist you in obtaining this information. 

    Using your medical coverage should not raise your premiums.

  • Q: The Insurance Company Has Been Calling Me And Wants To Settle,What Should I Do? 
    A: Do not sign or settle until you have had us evaluate your injury for you. If you settle before your injury is fully resolved, you will be completely on your own and will have to pay out of pocket for your care. 

  • Q: I've Been To The Hospital And My Medical Doctor, Do I Really Need to See a Chiropractor? 
    A: You need a doctor who focuses in the treatment and diagnosis of auto accident injuries. Usually hospitals will check vital signs, make sure there are no life-threatening conditions and release the patient with pain relief medication. They normally do not treat the underlying improper musculoskeletal biomechanics that can and often do lead to future pain. If you are still having problems, you should get a second opinion. 

    If your M.D. has given you pills, you must understand that pills do not correct structural or soft tissue damage. There are special therapies designed for that, and we offer these modalities at our office. 

  • Q: Does Your Care Hurt? 
    A: Absolutely not. The care is very gentle and quite soothing. Most patients can hardly wait to get their care. 

  • Q: Is The Care Safe? 
    A: Yes, extremely. Particularly when compared to the side effects from medication. I urge you to go to the patient testimonial tab to get a feel for what you can expect.
