    Whiplash injury in Blackwater

    Help someone with a spinal injury

    A spinal injury can be one of the most painful and crippling type of injuries you can suffer from. If you have sustained a spinal injury then it may take a long time to get back to normal. Much like with a whiplash injury in Blackwater, it causes constant pain when sitting, standing or laying down, and will make getting on with your day to day life tricky. If you have a friend or loved one who is struggling with a spinal injury, there are a few things you can do to make their pain better and their life easier.

    • Get them to a doctor. If you suspect that a loved one is suffering from a spinal injury, the best thing you can do for them is get them to a doctor as quickly as possible. A spinal injury can leave you paralysed if not treated quickly and appropriately, so this is the first thing to do.
    • Allow them to rest. If you are in a position to move in with them for a short time then this is the best thing to do, so that you can help them around the house and make sure everything is done so that they can get all of the rest they need.
    • Help them to avoid stress. Stressful situations can just make the situation last all the longer, as well as making this time even more painful for them. Try to help out where you can to keep them calm and happy.
    • Make sure they get their medication. After seeing a doctor they should be taking medication for the pain and to help them to heal. Make sure they get this as often as they need it.
    • Use heat and cold to fight the pain. Instead of feeding them painkillers constantly, help them to apply heat packs and ice to the affected area as needed to help with the pain and any inflammation.
