Car Accidents & Whiplash

Early Detection and Treatment Key for Whiplash Suffers
We Urge you to Contact Ramer Chiropractic right after your Car Accident, Bike Accident or Motorcycle Accident to get immediate care and decrease the chances of long term future health complications of whiplash and other injuries.

Without a doubt, experiencing an automobile accident is a traumatic event. The property damage is immediately apparent. However, physical injuries may not always be so obvious. In fact, it can sometimes be days, weeks or months before the victim begins to feel the physical effects. Working with local area attorneys and lawyers, we at Ramer Chiropractic ensure that you get the best of chiropractic care to resolve immediate pain as well as long term health issues following your Accident.

Nonetheless, it’s critical that as the injured party of an automobile accident, you make your health your first concern. Your car can be easily replaced, but if you fail to care for your health, it can make your problems significantly worse and more difficult to treat.

Whiplash injury is common among those who experience automobile accidents and there are two important points we need to make on this issue before we discuss whiplash in more detail:

  • Chiropractic is the only proven effective treatment in chronic cases of whiplash. This is the finding of a study published in the British Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine.
  • Not all Santa Monica chiropractors are trained in the biomechanics of a whiplash injury. Dr. Ramer is specially trained and certified in whiplash injury and brain traumatology.
  • Dr. Ramer also uses cold laser therapy and low force activator and impulse instrument which is very effective in trauma incidents.

In other words, for truly effective treatment and healing for your whiplash injury, chiropractic is the only therapy that works. In addition, when looking for a properly trained and experienced chiropractor, Santa Monica residents should consult Dr. Ramer if they have been in an automobile accident or otherwise suspect they may suffer from whiplash.

What to look for

Some accident victims may experience symptoms immediately after the accident, but others can go for as long as months before their symptoms begin to manifest themselves. Here are some of the common symptoms of whiplash to be on the lookout for:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Upper or mid-back pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Arm pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Lack of concentration
  • Tingling and numbness in arms and hands
  • Tingling and numbness in legs
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Dizziness

Again, note that while you may feel fine right after your accident, it could be just a matter of time before many of these symptoms begin to set it. With her experience and training, Dr. Ramer can diagnose your condition before the problems arise. It is very important to contact Dr. Ramer immediately after your accident so she can evaluate your condition, see if you have suffered any structural damage and begin treatment accordingly. Left untreated, whiplash injuries can be life altering and dramatically impair your lifestyle and be the source of chronic pain.

At Ramer Chiropractic, our goal is to provide you with the care that will get you back to the condition you enjoyed before you experienced your accident.

The right treatment for your condition

If necessary, Dr. Ramer will obtain the proper x-rays and MRIs to thoroughly diagnose your condition and give you any referral that might be needed. Further, she is able to draw on a wide array of technologically advanced treatment methods to restore your health and wellness. These include techniques such as myofascial release, cranio sacral therapy, ultrasound, laser and electric stimulation cellular massage.

Also, Dr. Ramer practices an advanced low-force instrument and activator chiropractic method to correct alignment. Few, if any, other chiropractors in Santa Monica or the Los Angeles area are certified in instrument adjusting. It is both gentle and effective. Patients familiar with the traditional “cracking and popping” experienced at other chiropractic clinics greatly appreciate this modern method.

Ramer Chiropractic urges you to contact us today if you have been in an accident or are feeling any of the whiplash symptoms. We will gladly schedule your first appointment with Dr. Ramer so you can begin down the path to renewed health and wellness.
