Staying active to manage your whiplash injury in Codnor
It is normal to feel a little more pain when you are moving about after any type of injury and this is something you will have to come to terms with and decide to deal with in order to make your recovery faster and more successful.
The more active you are, the better your body will be prepared to deal with your injury, and the more likely it is that you will recover quickly. However, you shouldn’t jump right back into high impact exercise after a whiplash injury in Codnor, or any other type of over strenuous exercise as you can make your injury worse.
Here are some ways you can stay active and start to heal:
- Try warm up exercises. Try to get into a routine of doing warm up exercises without actually progressing to the full exercise regime at first. Warm up exercises are designed to gently stretch the body out and relieve tension, and will help you to stay flexible without risking any further injury.
- Pace yourself. Don’t feel that you need to try to do everything at once, and complete a full exercise routine straight away. Work slowly and carefully, ensuring that you do each exercise correctly, and stop if you start to feel pain.
- Try a physiotherapist. A physiotherapist is trained to help you to get back to normal and heal the pain that you are in without pushing you too far or putting you into positions where you risk injuring yourself even further. You can ask your doctor to refer you if you don’t already know a good therapist.
