How Long Does Neck And Back Pain Last After A Whiplash?

I was in a car crash over a week ago. I went to the er and they told me I had whiplash and that I should rest. They prescribed flexeril and naproxen. The only thing that helped was the flexeril. Now I’m out of it and my back and neck hurt pretty much all of the time.

Hi,

Whiplash is a relatively common injury during motor vehicle accidents. The duration of pain period depends upon the intensity of the impact with other host factors. (as may resolve within 2-3 days or last for weeks).

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Purva Patel,
