Although this is likely to be a huge comfort during your injury claim in Melksham, there are physical factors which need to be looked after as well.
Here are some steps to recovering as quickly and easily as possible.
The first step in many injuries is to apply ice as soon as possible. Ice works to bring down the swelling on most injuries, which stops them from getting worse. The ice will also stop the pain and discomfort that comes with any injury. Ice should be applied for up to 72 hours following the accident, as swelling can continue for a long time and pain is likely to continue for some time without it. Never apply ice directly to the skin — instead, always wrap it something first, such as a tea towel.
Rest and Exercise
Although these two ideas may seem conflicting, there is a specific way you should rest after an injury, and it means also keeping a little active so that your injury does not seize up. An injury needs plenty of rest so that undue pressure is not applied to an already fragile muscle or bone. If you are quite physically active, it is important that you reign in your physical activity for a little while following your injury. You must not be completely sedentary though, as this can actually cause your injury to take longer to heal. Do light exercise a couple of times a week and keep the injured area moving, even just a little.
Many people do not realise how important water is in keeping the body healthy. The body needs a lot of water to stay completely hydrated and healthy, as it flushes through the various toxins that the body accumulates throughout the day. Keep drinking water all day long and your body will work more effectively towards healing.
