Whiplash injury in Andover


Playing sport after an injury

Obviously it is not recommended that you take up a sport for the first time after you have sustained a back or whiplash injury in Andover. You need to exercise to rebuild your muscles and get completely back to health, but you also shouldn’t try anything that is out of your comfort zone as it could actually make your whiplash injury in Andover worse. However, if you were a fairly sporty person before your injury, and want to return to your sport as quickly as possible, there are ways that you can make this safer and easier on yourself.

Claim compensation for a back or whiplash injury in Andover

One of the best ways in which you can get the best treatment and care after a back or whiplash injury in Andover is to pay for your medical care.

Accident Advice Helpline has over 15 years’ experience with personal injury compensation claims and will provide you with experienced injury lawyers if they feel you have a good case.

Build up slowly

Before you get straight back into sport you need to get your body into a good condition so that it is ready to take on the challenges that whichever sport you take part in offers you. Try to start out by walking and jogging slowly, combining this with back strengthening exercises and stretches until you feel that your physical condition is almost back to what it was before your accident. If you don’t do this then you have a real chance of being badly injured the next time you go to play sport.

Train with a teammate

Before you go straight back into the sport, grab a friend who is also on your team so that they can train with you in the moves necessary for your sport. You can practice throwing, catching, blocking and running with this person, and as there is only one other person playing you have less chance of getting injured. This can also help to build up your skill as much as possible before you attempt to play again with the whole team.

Prepare mentally

Just because your body is ready for the challenges of your particular sport does not mean your mind will be. Be prepared to feel more nervous or self conscious when you play than you have done in the past. You are likely to feel more territorial about your space, and be nervous when people get too close to you. Acknowledge this so that you don’t find yourself freezing every time someone comes near to you during a practice or a game.
