    Injury Claim in Portobello Birtley


    Nutrition After Your Injury

    If you have had a serious accident or injury, then you will need to make some changes to your lifestyle for a little while after the fact. This is because your body will need to be treated differently and will need a lot more care taken of it in order to ensure that it recovers effectively. Your doctor may suggest a certain diet, exercise regime or different medications to get you back to normal after any surgery or accident, but there are things you can do at home to speed up your recovery as well.

    Here are some of the foods you should eat after an injury to give you a better recovery process.

    High Fibre

    Fibre is great for two main reasons when it comes to getting the body back to complete health after an accident or surgery. High-fibre foods are generally healthier than low or no-fibre foods, and the body processes them better. Fibre also prevents constipation, which is common after surgery or any accident as your body’s natural processes slow down to help heal your injury.

    Foods with high fibre:

    • Wholegrain bread;
    • Cereal; and
    • Fruit.

    Lean Protein

    Lean protein has long been known to help to build muscle and keep the body in the best possible shape. When you are recovering from a major accident, your body needs all the help it can get to build muscle and get the nutrients it needs. If you eat lean protein you can give your body the best fuel to run on, which will fill you up without making you sluggish, or give you just a burst of energy which quickly runs out.

    • Pork;
    • Nuts; and
    • Tofu.

    Fruit and Vegetables

    Whatever is happening in your life, you should try to get your five a day, but this is more important than ever when you are recovering from an accident or injury. Fruits and vegetables give you all of the vitamins and minerals you need for your body to run effectively. They will also clear your skin and make your body feel more energised, which is very encouraging after you have had a major trauma.
