As Vancouver pedestrian injury attorneys, we have many clients who suffer with “leg issues.” Whether a car whacked you at an intersection and shattered your kneecap, or an SUV in a parking garage backed into you and caused nerve damage, you are struggling with the difficult healing process.

Other than getting the best possible medical care, as quickly as possible after your accident, how can you manage your condition and adapt to life after an injury? Here are 7 ideas:

  1. Engage in a safe, slow, strength-training program to build your muscles and bones and protect against re-injury.
  2. Avoid consuming too much sugar or starch—or eating any foods that give you immune system issues. Be sure to get enough healthy protein, leafy green vegetables, and good fats in your diet.
  3. Keep a journal about your limp, so you know which activities stress you out and which ones you can tolerate. A journal can also help, when you need to file a personal injury lawsuit regarding your Vancouver pedestrian injury.
  4. Avoid consuming painkillers or other prescription medications beyond what your physician allows.
  5. Use your brain to find “workarounds” for limp-related problems in your life. For instance, if it hurts to sit at an office chair, consider getting an alternative seat such as an ergonomic blue bounce ball to reduce strain on the back and legs.
  6. Get insight into your crash with the help of a Vancouver pedestrian injury attorney at McComb Witten. Part of what makes accidents stressful is the uncertainty. When you understand what to expect, medically and legally, you can relax into the process of healing. Call us now at 604-255-9018 for a free consultation.
