How long it takes for whiplash to heal so that you no longer experience symptoms depends upon the severity of the injury. Your age can also have an effect on recovery time- the older you are, the longer it will take to recover.

A vast majority of neck pain goes away within a few days, and even more within three months. But studies show that between 12% and 50% of people still have persistent neck pain after a year.

That’s why it’s so important to seek the proper treatment for your whiplash as soon as possible to avoid having returning pain years later!
