What Is the Prognosis of Neck Strain? What Is the Recovery Time for Neck Strain?
With appropriate diagnosis and treatment, the overall prognosis for complete recovery from neck strain is excellent. With appropriate management, the vast majority of people with neck strain recover completely, rapidly, and without incident. In the absence of complicating factors such as nerve problems, a previously healthy person may reasonably expect complete recovery within a few days to a few weeks. Neck strain injury is a major source of lost days of work and can occasionally lead to a chronic pain syndrome.
