Recover from injury

A helping hand on the road to recovery

Are you finding yourself feeling confused, upset and isolated after your injury?

Maybe you have broken bones and you’ve just come home from hospital. Or you’re on crutches and need to recover for the next few months after a car accident.

Everything from cuts, bruises, swelling, back pain, a broken leg, a broken collarbone, torn ligaments and tendons, other fractures and strains can all be hard to deal with.

Perhaps you’ve stopped doing things you love like walking to your local café or exercising? Are the basics – like taking a shower, making food or even standing up – painful and frustrating?

What does recovering from injury mean? A massive change to your life.

I want others to be free from the experience of isolation, lifestyle challenges and emotional roller coasters that I had when I was injured.

Recover from Injury provides a hub for people who want to recover from injury in the best way possible. You’ll find information, services and a supportive community to help you tap into your inner resilience and get the help you need.

Injured, on crutches and feeling like a loser?

Using a crutch or two guarantees that you stand out in public. To everyone around, crutches are a true symbol that you are not as able-bodied as everyone else. But while you might feel a loser, it's likely that people around you don't think so. I believe crutches are...
