Before reading the following article , we would like to state that we do not devalue any known effective therapies or medicines for helping patients’ conditions and rehabilitation. We just try to relay information about a powerful ancient Chinese natural remedy to people who would benefit and may like to try this complimentary therapy.
We have listed a few of our clients’ testimonials regarding their injuries healed with moxibustion self- treatment as outlined on a previous article. This is an additional case.
A lady who is 77 years old had a fracture in her right wrist on 07/07/2015. She had the plaster on. Ten days later, the doctor took off the cast and put on another one for her. The second cast was removed on 18/08/2015. She decided to try the moxibustion self-treatment two days after the plaster had been removed. There was pain and swelling in her wrist at that time.
Here is a photo taken before the moxibustion self-treatment started.
Within four weeks, the pain in her wrist went away completely. The swelling came down quite a bit. Here is a photo taken at that time.
19 days after the second photo taken, the swelling was less again. She went back to see the surgeon at the local hospital on 13/10/2015. They did x-Ray and physical examination on her wrist. Everything was fine, so the surgeon discharged her.
The photo below was taken on the day after she had left the hospital. (19 days after the second photo was taken.)
In general, functional recovery for stable fractures without complications can be six months and 1-2 years for complex fractures. Sometimes, even for younger people, some can still experience pain, stiffness, swelling, limited movements in related joints months after a fracture, let alone in a older person. Her wrist was pain free within four weeks after getting the cast off. In fact, she would have recovered even faster if she could have had the moxibustion self-treatment when she was having the cast on.
According to the cases we have known, moxibustion self- treatment is worth trying when people have bone damage. The faster they can recover from the fractures, the better for them to go back to their normal life, the less pain they would have to go through. It should be more economical, including time saving, for them too. People would not need to go anywhere and rely on anyone else or any devices for their damaged bone(s) rehabilitation so much as they would normally have to. Like this lady, her GP wanted to see her and thought that she may need to be referred to a physiotherapist for some treatment. However, she has been discharged by the surgeon at the hospital before her appointment with her GP!!!
When people can recover faster from their fractures or any other injuries or operations by having moxibustion home therapy safely, it would save medical resources for the whole society as well!
