Getting back to fitness after an accident- no win no fee in Birchington
After a serious accident, if you have been badly injured or even broken a bone, it can take quite a long time to get back to your normal level of physical fitness.
You will be required to rest at least the area that was broken or damaged for quite a long time whilst you recover, and this can lead to serious loss of muscle in that area, and make it difficult for you to do any other type of physical exercise as well.
Here are some tips on getting back to your normal level of fitness after an accident.
- Take it slow. The worst thing you can do to try to get back to fitness is to push yourself too hard, too fast. Trying to do more than your body is physically capable of, so soon after an accident, will only lead to you making your injuries worse, and extending your recovery process. Build up a little more each week, and if it hurts too much then simply stop.
- Try low impact exercise. The best type of exercise for those recovering from an injury is low impact exercise, that works out the muscles and tendons, but doesn’t require the intensity of, say, running or weightlifting. Try swimming or stationary cycling when you first start to exercise. Swimming in particular is great, because the water supports you as you exercise, and the exercise works your entire body.
- Speak to a physiotherapist. A physiotherapist will be able to suggest exercises which will benefit your body the most, and which pose the least threat to your health as you are recovering. They can also work out with you to give you tips and help.
- Rest. As important as exercise is, rest is also important. Taking a rest day will help your muscles to recover and build up, whilst working out too much every day is more likely to cause a blow out that may take even longer to recover from.
