Auto Accident Injury
Being in a car accident is a very difficult situation on a number of levels. Your pain is sometimes secondary to the aftermath of having your car at the mechanic as well as the stress of dealing with your insurance and potentially missing work.
While you are in a hurry to get your car fixed and back to normal activities, you should be aware your pain may worsen in the days following the accident. Headaches, trouble sleeping, numbness and tingling in the shoulder, legs, feet and hands, along with shoulder and knee pain is a serious problem….seek attention. There could be underlying injuries that a minor stiff neck are not allowing you to recover.
