    Whiplash injury in Alnwick

    How to take care of yourself when recovering from an injury

    If you have had an accident and sustained a whiplash injury in Alnwick then it may take some time for you to get back on your feet and start to feel normal again. During this time it may be helpful for you to take some time off work and start to really look after yourself, in order to get your body into the best possible shape for recovery. You will eventually recover from your whiplash injury in Alnwick, but in the meantime, you may as well try to speed your recovery along.

    See your doctor about your whiplash injury in Alnwick

    The first thing you can do to speed up your recovery is see a doctor. Your doctor may be able to prescribe medication to help your whiplash injury in Alnwick, or exercises which will help you to regain your mobility. If you can get a full medical assessment, you may also be able to claim compensation for your whiplash injury in Alnwick, through Accident Advice Helpline. This can help you to pay for medical bills, as well as keep yourself afloat until you can go back to work. Call the helpline on 0800 689 0500 to get started.

    Get plenty of rest

    The body heals faster when it is at rest, so this is the perfect time to kick back and relax, get lots of naps and try not to worry about the things which you feel need doing. Apart from any exercises your doctor has prescribed, you shouldn’t try to exercise or force your recovery, just rest and let it heal in its own time.

    Take supplements

    You should be trying to eat healthily during your recovery in order to help your body to heal more quickly. Supplements can add vitamins and minerals on top of this to help your body to fight off any infections or illness which can strike you when you are already run down. Look for a multivitamin or all in one which can help.

    Get help around the house

    If you can afford to, pay for a cleaner to come and help you around the house whilst you are recovering. This will stop you straining your neck or back whilst cleaning. If you cannot afford this, ask friends and family to help you out for a short while. If you do not strain yourself then you should be better in no time and will be able to return the favour.

    See a physiotherapist

    Ask your doctor about getting referred to a physiotherapist, who can help you with exercises to get your mobility back to what it was, and speed up the recovery from your whiplash injury. They can also help you with any other problems that your accident may have caused physically.
