There’s an ancient Chinese saying, “Better to break a
bone that tear a tendon.”
Two years ago 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.
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 was inconvenienced for a few days with
a splint – and my wife and I were grateful the injury wasn’t
At a young age you don’t often hear of kids tearing tendons –
but as we get older, tendons and ligaments are very common
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.
