I joined this forum about a week ago because of questions about some persistent neck pain I have been having on and off for some time. I was rear-ended about 2 years ago. Thankfully, the accident was not very severe, and, actually, I felt fine with no pain after it occurred. I did not go for any treatment or evaluation at the time. However, now, nearly 2 years later, I am still having some neck pain. One of the members stated that it was probably some type of whiplash, which I am very familiar with, due to my job. I am planning on getting some physical therapy soon, to see if it helps. The pain seems to be on either side of my spine, rather than near my spine itself. I am hoping it is some type of muscle strain, rather than any damage to the spine, such as herniated disks, etc... In any event, curious if anyone else out there is from Missouri? Great forum. Thanks!
