Whiplash: If you have been carefully examined and have pain and probably spasm from whiplash, try wearing a soft cervical collar which may help you sleep better. Cold and warm applications and,if you can take them,NSAIDS like ibuprofen along with your muscle relaxant can lessen pain. Have a follow-up exam by your physician or an orthopedic specialist.
