    Whiplash injury in Colchester

    Self help tips if you are in pain

    There is only so much a doctor can do about a  whiplash injury in Colchester or any other source of neck or back pain.

    However, this is small comfort when you are in pain and unable to do all of the things that you would usually do in your everyday life, especially if you are suffering from a whiplash injury in Colchester or any other type of injury which is not your fault.

    There are things you can do at home, alongside what your doctor has prescribed, to make yourself feel a little better.

    Try a little exercise

    Don’t overdo it, because this can actually cause many injuries to get worse, but if you are in pain a little exercise can go a long way towards building up your muscles and getting your body into a good enough shape to fight your whiplash injury in Colchester.

    Look into stretching and low impact exercise such as walking and swimming, as this puts much less pressure on your joints.

    Claim compensation for a whiplash injury in Colchester

    Although claiming compensation will not do much for the actual pain you are in, it can do wonders for your emotional health following the accident which caused your whiplash injury in Colchester.

    Call Accident Advice Helpline on: 0800 689 0500, or: 0333 500 0993 from a mobile to find out whether or not you have a good case for compensation and, if you do, consider moving forwards with a claim.

    The team will pair you with an experienced injury lawyer who will work with you on a 100% no win no fee basis to get you the compensation you deserve. You can also get advice and support from the helpline, and your injury lawyer will work entirely on your behalf, so you shouldn’t have to go to court.

    Breathe through the pain

    It is a natural reaction to hold your breath or to start to hyperventilate when you are in pain, which is something that can make you feel dizzy and nauseous, or make the pain worse.

    Learn to breathe through any pain that you are in, taking long deep breaths in, and breathing out for a count of ten. Just focusing on this can make the pain seem minimised.

    Get support

    Whether this is from friends and family, or from people suffering the same problems as you (via a support group) being able to talk about your pain and how you are feeling emotionally can make the problem seem smaller and thus reduce the impact of the pain. Also, you may wish to ask your doctor about going to a therapy group.
