    Treating a whiplash injury in Amesbury

    If you have had an accident and sustained a whiplash injury in Amesbury, the first thing you should always do is see a doctor and get any more serious conditions or problems ruled out. An accident in which you have sustained whiplash could just have easily caused spinal problems, and if you have had a head trauma you should get a scan and be watched carefully for a day or so as well.

    You may also want to claim compensation using Accident Advice Helpline if you feel that your whiplash injury in Amesbury was the result of someone else’s negligence. If you are sure that you just have a whiplash injury and are waiting for it to heal, there are certain things you can do to make the recovery process a little quicker.

    Take painkillers

    A whiplash injury is likely to be uncomfortable, and can make it difficult to walk and stand comfortably without taking lots of rests. During the worst time you should consider getting some prescription strength painkillers which will help you to feel more able to get on with the day. Make sure you speak to your doctor about your whiplash so he or she can record your suffering.

    Rest and stay off work

    Trying to get back to work too quickly after a whiplash injury in Amesbury can actually cause you to struggle to recover, and make your recovery process that much longer. Take some time off as sick leave and stay at home, take lots of naps and get as much rest as you can. Try not to worry about getting better, as stress will just make you tense and mean it will take you even longer to get better. Try to be as active as you are comfortable with, but avoid heavy exercise or overexerting yourself.

    See a physical therapist

    Although there are exercises you can do at home, seeing a physical therapist at first is the best way for you to find out which exercises work well for you, and to make sure that you are doing them correctly so that you don’t injure yourself further. Ask your doctor to refer you to a physical therapist and make sure you attend all of your appointments. Accident Advice Helpline can arrange physiotherapy for you while your claim is in progress. The cost will be claimed from the party who caused your injury.
