Ok, I was in a car wreck last night, and now my back and neck is killing me...what all do any of y'all do for injuries of this sort?

Sounds like you've got whiplash injuries. Usually they aren't serious but its best to let a doc check you out.

I was in a wreck about ten years ago and ended up a bit battered, bruised ribs etc and the first thing the doc did was put my neck in one of those braces until he could check that it wasn't damaged. When I asked why he did that, I was told that some people with whiplash injury actually had broken necks and didn't know it.

For injuries like that, I usually sue


But seriously, folks... Pisky is right; don't try anything beyond a hot bath before you head to a doctor. Trying to pop your spine back into place could cause more problems than it would solve, and I'd hate to see a fellow ATSer succumb to such an injury.

Good luck, and a swift recovery!

You need xrays to rule out broken or fractured bones.
If you have soft tissue injuries, you may need physical therapy
and anti-inflammatory medicine. Go to a doc!

Yes, you really need to get X-rayed at least. It could just be a muscle strain but its best to be sure.
