    Recovery tips for your injuries

    See your doctor

    After a slip, trip or fall, you may think that you are able to assess your injuries yourself, but a visit to a doctor will help to check that you haven’t sustained a more serious injury, as well as ensure that you are given the right treatment. A visit to a doctor to confirm your injuries is also essential if you want to claim compensation for your accident.

    Don’t go to work if it’s not advisable

    You may want to return to work immediately following your accident in order to avoid a loss of earnings, but this could make your injuries worse. Talk to your employer about the possiblity of working from home or even reducing your hours to help your recovery and ensure that you don’t miss out on your wages.

    Ease yourself into exercise

    Your doctor will be able to tell you whether or not exercise is advisable. You will want to start off with gentle exercise in order to ease yourself back into it before returning to your normal regime. Many people use an injury as an excuse not to exercise, but in fact, forgoing exercise altogether could lead to longer term pain and discomfort as well as lead to other health issues.

    Rest

    It’s important that you get enough rest following your accident. Whilst it may be tempting to carry on with the usual cleaning, cooking and laundry chores, any form of strenious effort could aggravate your injuries. Getting some help around the house in the form of a housekeeper or cleaner could help you out during this difficult period.
