Neck Pain: Strangely the degree of "whiplash" has little direct relation to degree of pain. Factors such as head turning at time of neck trauma, habitual bad posture, continued bad posture, are factors. MRI may show anatomical changes.
Recommend: 4 minute shower to back of neck while slowly turning from side to side. Massage to neck - like a toothpaste squeeze is beneficial.
