Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Sep 7, 2018 11:37:53 AM

No two people are exactly alike; therefore, everybody heals differently and at different times. 

The average recovery time for whiplash injuries is about 6 weeks.  However, the healing process will vary from person to person based on the severity of the injury and personal characteristics such as age, mental health, and occupation.   

People who are more severely injured from the accident will take longer to fully recover.
