How to recover from bone fractures
A bone fracture will always take a long time from which to recover, and will be painful and difficult with which to deal whilst you are in the process of recovering. You will need to see a doctor to get treatment, and perhaps be passed over to a physiotherapist to help you to get back to normal as quickly as possible, but there are also a few things you can do for yourself to help your body to heal more quickly. Taking control in this way can make you feel less helpless and stressed out during the recovery process.
- Keep your cast in a good condition. Your cast is there to keep your fracture steady and ensure that it heals as well as it possibly can. If you damage the cast then your bone will not be adequately protected, and this can lead to troubles with the healing process. Hospital staff will tell you how to look after your cast, and you should keep this information in mind.
- Attend physiotherapy. You will generally be referred to a physiotherapist, who is there to help you to get back to normal as quickly as possible. Although physiotherapy can feel difficult and painful from time to time, you should keep attending until they tell you you don’t need to attend anymore.
- Look out for infection. Any pain which you don’t feel should be there, discharge or swelling around the fracture should be looked at by a doctor as soon as possible, otherwise you run the risk of the injury actually getting worse rather than better.
- Tell your doctor if your medication has side effects. Do this instead of coming off of any medication that has been prescribed to you, as doing this could impede your healing.
