First, the body is so amazing! #wolverine #regenerative #power in #slowmotion exists within us.
In Nov, almost a year ago, I completely fractured my radius in my dominant right wrist. (the 2 pics on the left)
Yesterday I got another x-ray and with time, support from a whole lot of people…allopathic and homeopathic/alternative/holistic healers as well as my family, friends and myself that fractured bone has healed beautifully without the need for surgery. #thebodyispowerful
And even with that I still have a way to go. The impact that caused my bone to break also impacted the tissues, ligaments, cartilage, muscle, tendons that surround the bone (not pictured). Pain, discomfort, numbness, cramping, limited range of motion…all still very present in my daily life. Not only in the wrist, but up the arm…forearm, elbow, shoulder. Im not sharing this as a way to wallow in pain. Im still active, determined to heal and restore, optimistic (although at times a bit frustrated to still be dealing with this-im human). Im sharing mainly as a documentation of my own journey for myself, but also because I feel its important to acknowledge as a yogini and bodyworker and someone that believes all medicine has a purpose and place and as a person that believes the body is capable of much more than we give it credit for and are even aware. Aside from the first 3 days after the accident I have not used pain medicine (not even an advil) to manage pain. Ive used reiki, massage, acupuncture, yoga, mantra, chiropractic support, physical therapy, homeopathic herbs and plant-based medicine as well as aromatherapy….and a whole lot of breathe-work & meditation. It is possible.
Ortho doc ordered and mri and arthrogram to see whats going on in my wrist aside from the bone to assess any tissue damage. There is slight misalignment in the wrist (as to be expected he said with the significance of the break). And the white spots on the bone in my wrist indicate post-traumatic arthritis. Now that I have that awareness and whatever I learn from the additional tests will lead me to plan my additional course of healing continuing to use My holistic care team and my own practice to heal.
