Broken arm exercises can help you recover when you have broken a bone in your arm. Initially, you will be confined to a plaster cast so you won’t be able to do much more than move your fingers. However, you can help your recovery once the plaster comes off by following advice and guidance provided by your care givers. You will probably be given a leaflet detailing some exercises that can help your recovery, and it is important to follow this.
Be prepared for your arm to feel stiff when the plaster first comes off. It will have been immobile for some weeks, depending on the length of recovery, and this means you might feel some pain when the plaster is removed and you start moving your arm again.
Obviously, you’re not going to start exercising your arm heavily when the plaster cast is first removed. It will take time to get back to normal, and you should be prepared to take painkillers for a while as you go through this process. If you need further advice, ask your physiotherapist or your GP for more information and support.
You will be given several easy exercises to do, each of which should be performed several times a day to reap the best benefits. Depending on how serious your broken arm was, you may find it takes several weeks to feel your arm is back to normal again. If you still experience pain and discomfort, you should speak to your GP to find out more and to see if there is anything else you can do.
Can you claim compensation for having to do broken arm exercises?
If you are going through the process of performing broken arm exercises at present, you will likely have broken your arm a few weeks ago. Now, you may not have thought of making a claim for that break, but was someone else responsible for the break occurring? Were you knocked over on a crossing or perhaps injured by slipping over on a wet floor?
If any of this sounds familiar or you suspect a no-win, no-fee* claim might work for you, call Accident Advice Helpline now. This is easy to do on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from any mobile device. Don’t you deserve to learn more about a possible claim?
