Recovering From Serious Injury With The Help of Our GP Home Doctor Service in Marbella

gp home doctor service for injury

Suffering a serious injury can bring both emotional strain and mind physical pain. This can make recovery from serious injury a long and slow process. With the help of our team as part of our GP service, you will start to recover from your injury.

We know that everybody deals with the trauma of a serious injury in different ways. Despite this, we also know that when recovering from a serious injury most people experience the same stages of trauma. Our GP home doctor service in Marbella will help to support your through the different stages of trauma and guide you to your recovery. We can put you in touch with the counsellors you need to deal with the emotional stress of your injury and guide you through the stages of your trauma. These are:

1. Denial

This first stage combines a range of feelings and emotions and is sometimes considered the most turbulent stage of trauma. It can present itself as confusion and agitation and causes people to react in a way that is unlike them. When experiencing denial, people may feel shock or disbelief about their situation and this can make it hard to face the issue head-on. Our GP home doctor service in Marbella will help you to face up to your injury so that you can find a way to tackle your injury and adapt to its effects.


2. Anger

For some, anger and denial occur at the same time. At this point, you may experience waves of blame both on yourself and others. You may also feel jealousy over others who are uninjured. The team who work as part of our GP home doctor service in Marbella will help you develop techniques to manage this anger and move past it.


3. Bargaining

Although this stage does show some degree of acceptance it can cause people to bargain over their recovery. This may come with thoughts such as "I wish things could be how they used to." We'll help you to stay focused on the positives and help you to heal emotionally.

4. Depression

After suffering a serious injury you may start to experience feelings of uselessness and worthlessness. We'll be able to recommend counsellors or prescribe medication to help you through this depression so that you can start to focus on your recovery.

5.  Acceptance

Although this is the final stage of emotional responses to trauma, it's by no means the end of the road to recovery. It is usually when you start to accept the outcomes of your injury and your current physical limitations. This will make it much easier to focus on the physical side of your recovery.

As well as helping you deal with the emotional side of your recovery, our GP home doctor service in Marbella will be able to suggest helpful rehabilitation and strengthening exercises specifically for your injury. This will help you strengthen your body and hopefully overcome your injury.

If a full recovery isn't possible, our 24 hour GP home doctor service in Marbella will be on hand to make sure you have the support you need, when you need it.
