Life after breaking a bone – no win no fee* in Birkenhead
If you have broken a bone in an accident then the last thing you want to do is make the injury any worse, or slow down the recovery process. It is important that you take care of a broken bone as well as encouraging it to heal so that it ends up stronger than ever.
It can be tempting to try to shield a broken bone from any physical activity, and because of the injury you may find yourself being overly cautious and even nervous when trying to move around as normal. Here are some tips on how to get on with your day to day life after you have broken a bone.
Speak to your doctor
Find out from your doctor what activity it is recommended that you avoid for the time being. This way you will know what you are actually capable of physically, and what you medically should not be attempting. Knowing for certain what you do need to avoid can make it feel a little easier to do the things you can do.
Take it slowly
Try to build up a level of fitness and confidence when it comes to moving around on your newly healed limb. Set yourself small, achievable goals that you can reach every week, or even every day, and work towards these. Once you have done an activity, then try to do this every day instead of lapsing back into old habits.
Stop if it hurts
Although you should be pushing yourself not to be afraid, and to push the boundaries each day, if it does start to hurt then you should stop, as the last thing you want to do is make the injury worse.
As you are recovering you will be able to do new things all of the time. But whilst you are unable to do certain activities there is no shame in accepting help from those who are willing to provide it. This can take some of the pressure off of trying to recover fully.
