Recovery from a whiplash injury can be time consuming and a lengthy process for some. It varies from case to case depending on the severity of the injury and some research has shown that if you try to have a positive attitude towards your recovery it can be quicker. If you have a whiplash injury in Aboyne there might be some questions you are asking yourself such as:
- Will I make a full recovery?
- How can I aid my recovery?
- How long will it take for me to recover?
- Can I continue working?
- Will I be able to continue with my usual daily activities?
We cannot answer these questions as each case will depend on the individual and the injuries incurred. However there are steps you can take to begin to help yourself.
Self-help if you have sustained a whiplash injury in Aboyne
Try to go about your daily routine as usual, but avoid activities that may put your neck under undue stress. Take up light exercise, a programme specifically designed for the neck and upper back. Try to maintain correct posture at all times. Whiplash affects your spine and it is easy to allow yourself to develop bad postural habits. You need to be aware of your posture when you are doing tasks throughout the day.
Your doctor will be able to advise you further about the correct posture and exercises you can do to maintain it.
