Being in a car accident is a very difficult situation on a number of levels. Your pain is sometimes seems 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. But too often it is the pain that lasts long after those other stressors are gone!
While you are in a hurry to get your car fixed and back to normal activities, make sure to see RIGHT AWAY before you make any major decisions! There could be underlying injuries that a minor stiff neck is not allowing you to uncover. A car accident is a major event and the trauma that comes from them could be significant and lifelong.
