    I was in a bit of car accident last week.

    http://www.baynews9.com/article/news/2011/february/206370/Truck-plunges-into-Hillsborough-River-in-downtown-Tampa

    Couple minor scratches and my back is kind of tight right now.

    So 1) are there any work outs that i can do to help ease the pain?
    2) when could i start working out again?

    Holy shit. Glad you came out with only minor injuries. Could have been a lot worse. Anyways, talk to a doctor first. Might be better to do some physical therapy before you actually go back to hitting the weights.

    Glad you were able to away with only minor cuts.

    I would say wait a week and in between that time you should probably go see a doctor just to make sure.

    What??? ... icon_eek.gif ... you dont go on line to a forum to get your medical advice after a car accident? .... I am so surprised. .... It's the first place I would go. .... I mean, really, if a bunch of strangers on the internet can't diagnose your problem, what hope is there for this world. ... icon_rolleyes.gif

    Strongly agreed. This is a question for a medical professional who has evaluated you in person. NO ONE online can make such an assessment.

    PLEASE see a doctor and ask THEM this question, not random guys on an internet forum!
