Most people who experience whiplash will recover within a few months. However, some people continue to have pain for several months or years after the injury occurred.

It is difficult to predict the outcome, but in general, chronic pain may be more likely when the initial symptoms include rapid onset of pain, severe neck pain, headaches and pain that radiates to the arms.
