    A back injury can affect every aspect of your day to day life, making it difficult to walk, sit up and sleep. It can affect your job and make it difficult to socialise with family or friends. Back injuries are also fairly common, with many of them caused at work due to lifting or moving heavy objects improperly, or even just sitting incorrectly at a desk. If an injury is caused through the negligence of your employer then you may need to consult injury lawyers in Ruthin to help you make a claim for compensation.

    How to recover from a back injury

    Here are some ways to recover from a back injury so that you can get back to normal as soon as possible:

    • Work out where the injury is. In many cases, back pain can be felt throughout your back and neck even though the injured area will only be in one place. Work out where the pain is centralised by running your hands over your back and pressing gently on your back and spine. When you reach the area of pain, you will know!
    • Work out how bad it is. If your back pain is very bad, you should see a doctor to get medication and treatment. If it is simply a strain which hurts but not too badly, you may just need to rest it. Only you can tell how bad the pain is, so assess it for yourself.
    • Rest. With back pain you should rest more than you might rest for any other illness or injury. This means bed rest for the first few days, until you feel comfortable sitting up, then staying in a position that is comfortable until you have healed a little better. See a doctor and get treatment started as soon as possible though, as spending too long in bed can make your back stiffer.
    • Use ice and heat to bring down inflammation. Ice and heat are natural anaesthetics and will make you feel better, as well as bringing down any swelling or inflammation.
