In brief: Depends on dx

Average time to heal acute neck backache is 6 weeks you can't put healing and health on a schedule time to heal is variable definition of normal vaires as well.

In brief: Likely yes

Most neck pain is oflimited duration and will self resolve.
I would suggest heat and over the counter nsaids like motrin. Try a massage.
