    How is it affecting you? My accident occured 10 months ago. I have recovered like 60% and it sucks. My chiropractor told me it was a mild whiplash, but I am still in pain. If mild whiplash is this bad I wonder how bad serious whiplash is. I am 32. Will this go away or will be part of my whole life? Did anybody recover from this injury? My bones are fine, it is just soft tissue. Just the neck and the shoulders. The rest of my body is perfectly fine.
    Sorry for this irrelevant topic

    Not whip lash... But I have a very old back injury, I broke my back when I was 16. There are days it absolutely kills me... Others I don't even notice it.

    Were spine and bones involved?

    No damage to spinal cord, but broke my T-12 vertebra.

    Yeah that is a little serious. Vertebras dont heal I think. How do you manage trucking?

    I stopped going to Chiros. I go to physical therapist and pain management doctors. Received some pain injections too

    The problem is that I kept driving despite the injury. I should have taken a 2 month rest. But doctor said I can keep working so I did.

    Do you mention that during job interviews?
    I injured my back changing main rotor blades on Huey's. I never mention it. Trucking companies may think, "This guy may be a problem some day."
