Life After a Cycling Injury

Life After a Cycling Injury

Roman & Gaynor for

Bicyclists are in a dangerous position. They are entitled to the same rights and privileges as automobiles on the road, yet they face a far greater risk of getting into an accident. And, because bicyclists are not as protected as other motorists, their injuries are often catastrophic and sometimes fatal.

If you were involved in a cycling accident, there may be a long road of recovery ahead of you. Cyclists who are injured in accidents struggle not only physically, but mentally as well. Most people injured in bicycle accidents are avid cyclers. Cycling may be the way they get to and from work, exercise, and spend their free time. The hole left by not being able to cycle is deeply felt. What happens next?

Recovering From a Bicycle Accident

The first step a recovering bicyclist should take is to learn about their injury- extensively. By understanding the injury, a cyclist can better understand how it is affecting them physically as well as mentally and emotionally. Target how specifically your injury has impaired you, and go from there.

Find a good doctor or physical therapist. When it comes to building a support network to aid in your recovery, a good physician you can trust is essential. If you do not already have a family doctor you go to, get recommendations from friends or family. A good doctor should always have your best interests in mind when guiding you through the rehabilitation process.

It may be difficult, but another way to ensure a quicker recovery from a bicycle accident is to not get back on your bicycle until your doctor gives you clearance. Putting your body through rigorous exercise before it is fully healed can result in re-injury and a much longer road to recovery.
