neck injury

Hey all, messed up my neck. feels like what they call "whiplash." it has been this way for two weeks. Had three chiro adjusts and a massage, still sore. not sure what the heck I did, before the injury I was doing wods and heavy lifting 3-5x p week. any advice for recovering from a neck injury would be very helpful. I have not done much mobility work, and taken these last few weeks off to recover, but my neck is not getting any better. Thanks!

Re: neck injury

What happened to make it that way?

Generally, if it's something like a stuck facet joint in the cervical area the muscles will clamp down because the area is destabilized. The longer you go without getting it checked the worse it becomes and the longer it takes to heal.

If it keeps bothering you after adjustments it seems like the muscles are too tight for the adjustments to work... might be a good idea to get regular PT sessions. Try to find a physical therapy clinic that is good with manual work.

Dunno if that's actually the case, but that would be my guess based on super limited info (and my unprofessional opinion).
