Where can I receive expert personal injury claims advice in Lewes?
If you have already broken a bone, then one of the things you are likely to be the most afraid of in the future is breaking a bone again. It is a fact that if you have broken a bone before, you are more likely to fracture or injure that same body part again, as it is already weakened. However, if you know what you can do to prevent fractures and weakness in your bones then you should be able to take care of yourself as much as you can, and avoid any serious injuries down the line.
- Find out if you are at risk of osteoporosis. If you have broken a bone, it is worth speaking to your doctor about the chance that you may be prone to, or already have, osteoporosis. This is a condition which weakens your bones, making it more likely that you will break your bones over time. If your doctor knows about it, they can start doing something about it early.
- Take supplements. You should be thinking about taking calcium, magnesium and vitamin D to help maintain healthy bones, build bone density, and make it far less likely that you will suffer another bone break any time soon.
- Get exercise. Exercising will help to build up not only your bones themselves, but the network of muscles and tendons around your bones so that they are there to protect your bones if you do have a fall or another accident. Be careful, when you are still healing, but start an exercise regime as soon as you can.
- Be careful. Try to avoid risky behaviour in the future, any anything which could cause a further bone break or injury. If you do sports or other physical activities, make sure you have the right equipment.
