Ways to Cope With the Stress of an Unexpected Injury
When patients experience unexpected injuries, they’re often left in a vulnerable situation. He or she may find themselves pressured to undergo surgery and/or use pain killers along with other prescription medications to alleviate the pain. Although surgery and medication are available options, they are also alternatives that may cause problems in the future if they aren’t done or used properly. Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation provides its patients with the safest forms of therapy that can turn a potentially chronic injury into a temporary inconvenience.
What can I do if I can’t workout anymore due to an injury?
Typically, getting injured creates a higher level of unwanted stress. People tend to worry about weight gain after an injury occurs.
Everyone has his or her own way of keeping in-shape. Loosing weight isn’t always the easiest goal to achieve and it can be even harder for the injured patient who would rather stay physically active over dieting. Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation offers a nutritional weight-loss program that can become beneficial to any patient and can become an easy transition in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle for an injured patient. When you’re injured and feel like you have no choice other than to experiment with a new weight-loss regimen for the first time, it can be intimidating, overwhelming and difficult to accommodate without the help from a professional.
The weight-loss program we are talking about is called an Ideal Protein Method—a medically supervised nutritional program that increases energy level and alleviates aches and pains. This method provides one-on-one coaching to help you achieve your weight-loss goals. With the support of our doctors, patients will come to the realization that the Ideal Protein Method is a quick and enjoyable way to lose weight with or without injury.
How important is nutrition to regaining a healthy lifestyle?
Nutrition plays a very crucial factor in sustaining overall health and plays an important role in how fast a person can recover from an injury. According to the Sports Science Institute by SCAN Registered Dietitians, consuming adequate calories, carbohydrates, proteins, fluids, vitamins and minerals are all important. All of these elements help prevent dehydration and muscle glycogen depletion. NCAA.org states three specific tips on how to eat for optimal recovery and healing while preventing weight gain such as focusing on energy balance, focusing on a variety of whole foods and avoiding foods with high amounts of simple sugars or dietary fats.
