You seem have had a neck sprain due to the travel. The muscles in the neck and upper back would be in spasm, and are recovering very slowly. In most patients the pain and stiffness resolves gradually in 5-7 days. If you have persisting pain, increasing pain, disturbed sleep, pain in one or both arms, numbness or weakness in hands, then you need to meet an orthopaedic surgeon.
