AMTI (Advances in the Management of Traumatic Injuries) is a 150-hour certificate program by the ICA’s Council on Applied Science made in conjunction with American Academy of Motor Vehicle Injuries (AAMVI), with Dr. Don Hirsh, Dr. Bill Gallagher, and Dr. Joe Betz as our 3 featured speakers. This program on trauma care is for advanced chiropractors to hone and enhance their skill set – or to help a doctor new to personal injury care create a bulletproof practice.

The first module will be taking place at 3 different places over the country for 12 hours of CE credits. You only need to attend one of the in-person modules. The remaining 138 hours will be completed entirely online. When registering for event, if you do not already have an ICA member account, you will need to create one for free before purchasing registration.

Dr. Donald Hirsh founded Hirsh Chiropractic Center in Laurel, Maryland in 1987 with his wife, Dr. Susan Hirsh. Uniquely trained as a Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP®) Postural Analysis Spine Care provider, his expertise is correcting postural problems that often begin with traumatic injuries.

Dr. Fred Barge mentored and inspired Dr. Hirsh to “Be the Doctor’s Doctor.” Dr. Hirsh’s practice and teaching approach focuses on putting patient care first.  By concentrating on the patient’s subluxation complex, all else falls into place- a satisfied and healthier patient who refers, a pleased attorney who also refers, and an office that gets paid their true worth.

Dr. Bill Gallagher DC, Adv. Cert. in Motor Vehicle Injuries

As a child of the 50s and a product of the 60s Scottsdale chiropractor, Bill Gallagher was taught to question everything. That shows in his work that led to advances in Directional Non Force Technique, DNFT™. He is a 1988 graduate of Life Chiropractic College West and the founder of the American Academy of Motor Vehicle Injuries. When he decided to study personal injury, he attended as many seminars as he could find. What he found was that each teacher had an important piece of the puzzle, but none had a complete picture. To fill this gap, he created The Academy.  

The need for this information is undeniable and has allowed him to present classes across the country and as far away as Zurich where he co-chaired a pain management conference. There he presented twice on the Mechanism of Injury for Spine and for Concussions/TBI. With a long lineup of medical speakers, his were the presentations that the audience sat up for and took notes.  

The 150-hour Certificate in Motor Vehicle Injuries program is now available online with testing by NBCE.  

He has been a contributing editor for Attorney At Law Magazine, currently serves as President of the Arizona Association of Chiropractic, and as a panelist for Clinical Compass. He has contributed suggested changes for the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment 6th Edition and is working with them on the 2024 update. He can be reached at
