How to prevent a stress fracture and claim compensation after a car accident
In most cases, a stress fracture will be caused by a sports injury, or by repeated pressure on one particular part of your body through exercise or some other physical activity. If you do a very physical job then you are more likely to suffer a stress fracture, just as you will be more likely to sustain this kind of break if you play sports or do a lot of exercise. However, stress fractures can also be brought on during a Broadland car accident, or even randomly doing an everyday task. The best way to avoid one is to know what they are, and how you can prepare your body to avoid this kind of injury.
- Wear good shoes. Wearing old shoes, or shoes that do not provide adequate protection, is something that can easily lead to a stress fracture. Your feet need all the protection they can get when you are walking around or doing sport, so make sure that your shoes are in good condition, and shock-absorbent.
- Start activities slowly. Even if this is something you do every day, your body needs to be eased into any physical activity so that it can warm up. If you start at a high intensity then your body is far more likely to suffer from an injury, including a stress fracture.
- Stop at the first sign of pain. Many people think that they need to push through the pain of exercise or physical activity. However, this is something that doctors would never recommend, as your body should only feel pain when you are doing something that is dangerous for you.
- Look out for swelling and inflammation. If a certain part of your body regularly swells up or feels hot and achy after exercise, it is worth getting checked over by a doctor to make sure that you do not either have an injury that is getting worse, or the beginnings of a stress fracture.
