Hello dear welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I think you may need to continue physiotherapy as recommended by your doctor.
You may need to take painkillers such ibuprofen, naproxen or Diclofenac sodium to reduce pain and inflammation.
You may need to use warm compresses on your spine to stimulate blood flow.
Hope I have answered the question.

Brief Answer:
Pain and numbness go together.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and thank you for asking again.
Pain and numbness can come as a result of nerve compression due to spine issues caused by the accident.
Taking anti-inflammatory drugs may relieve inflammation and numbness may also get better as pain gets better. They always go together.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
