Sprained Neck

My father sprained his neck when he dived into swimming pool and his head hit the floor. Now he has pain in the spine just below the neck and on the right shoulder. He is able to move, but have constant pain. Now it is close to a month. Please suggest should I visit a orthopedic or a Rheumatologist.

Why didn't you consult anyone till now?
What were tou waiting for? Were you waiting for it to become worse?
