Assalamualaikum! my mother is having pain in neck and its been more than 3 months it is just not settling down. she also has stiffness in that area and feels pain in moving neck during routine. we thought its a normal muscle spasm but i read it on internet i think its whiplash injury. plz tell me its permanent cure except from painkillers. and should i take her to a orthopedic surgeon or a physiotherapist?
