There’s an old Chinese saying, “Better to break a bone that tear a tendon.”
Tuesday night this truth really hit home. Here’s why: My daughter was at gymnastics class and she sustained what the coaches thought was an elbow injury. It happens all the time.
Even so they advised us to get an x-ray and make sure.
Upon looking at the x-ray I spotted a break in her humerus (upper arm bone). I immediately phoned Dr. Bill an orthopaedic surgeon of the highest order – who also has some fabulous materials on avoiding knee surgery (be sure to check them
Using my i-Phone I took a photo of the x-ray and emailed it to him. As soon as he saw the film he said, “Oh, this is great. It’s the best break you can ask for. She won’t need surgery. She won’t even need a cast. They’ll probably just put a splint on it and gravity will heal it perfectly.”
What a relief that was.
And true to his words, the docs in Emergency confirmed, almost verbatim, what Dr. Bill said.
So my daughter is inconvenienced for a few days with a splint – and my wife and I are grateful the injury wasn’t worse.
At a young age you don’t often hear of kids tearing tendons – but as we get older, tendons and ligaments are very common injuries.
Elbow tendonitis is a perfect example. So is plantar fasciitis. Then there’s carpal tunnel pain – and so on.
I’ve personally dealt with a number of tendon injuries – and learned how to “fix” each of them on my own without drugs, surgery or any other medical procedure.
Just tried and true tendon exercises that I’ve learned in China or from Chinese kung fu masters. These exercises have not only gotten me out of pain – they’ve done the same for the people I’ve shown them to in my DVDs.
Wouldn’t you like to be the next person to rid yourself of a nagging tendon injury?
