Physical Recovery From An Injury

A friend of mine tore her ACL, and one day we were talking about the injury. “When I found out it was actually torn,” she said, “I just thought to myself, ‘if I died right now, it would be ok, because I have nothing to live for right now’”. It was a joke, and we both laughed, but what she said has always stuck with me. Many people don’t realize how frightening and difficult a serious injury can be. And if you are facing an injury that was the fault of someone else, you might have an even more difficult time coming to grips with it. As you prepare for a personal injury case, follow these steps to physically overcome your injury and get your life back on track.

  • See a doctor as soon as possible. When I was in college, I torn my meniscus, and for some unknown reason, I couldn’t tell that there was something seriously wrong with me. The day after it happened I woke up and found that I could barely walk. I stumbled to class holding back tears. Yet I spent the next six months working out, running and waitressing on my knee without even thinking of seeing a doctor. Don’t be dumb like me! Go see a doctor as soon as you can. Not only will this speed up your recovery process, but it can also help your personal injury case.
  • Do the physical therapy. Physical therapy is one of the most tedious, painful, boring experiences I’ve ever gone through – but not a day goes by that I am not grateful for doing it. If a doctor prescribes physical therapy for you, make sure that you do it! Yes, you will have physical therapy sessions in which you will work with a trainer, but you should also be doing strengthening exercising every day on your own. This will help you physically recover in the safest, fastest way possible.
  • Consult a doctor before starting physical activity. Make sure that you are ready to begin running, weight lifting, or even working a job that is physically demanding before you do so. Talk to your doctor about your recovery process and what you can handle.
  • Start with low impact activities. If you have a knee or ankle injury, don’t hit the pavement – start by running on an elliptical or biking. If you have an upper body injury, make sure that you are using low weights if you want to weight lift. If something doesn’t feel right, stop and consult your doctor.
  • Give yourself time to recover mentally. Oftentimes, it takes longer to recover mentally from an injury than it does to recover physically. In my next article, I will discuss some tips to help you recover from an injury mentally.

If you face an injury that was the fault of someone else, and you want to file a personal injury lawsuit, you should contact a personal injury lawyer. To discuss your situation with me during a free consultation, contact me here.
