osteoarthritis and whiplash

i have moderate  osteoarthritis in neck, last night my friend was driving and we had a minor accident i got  a little whiplash,i did not go to dr or hospital,i had minor soreness and stiffness all day. My question is do you think the whiplash will make my osteoarthritiss worse in my neck? How long should the minor affects of whiplash last?

It depends on how strongly you were thrown back and which joints were impacted and the degree of arthritis you have.  Your best assessment is by seeing a doctor.  I know when I had whiplash I did not know how much it had done until too late.  You should definitely see a doctor if you are hurting.
