Problematic bone injury
I had an accident four months ago and had a fracture on my leg. A traditional bone setter worked on the leg but up till now I cannot walk properly and my leg is bent. Halima
Most of traditional bone setters work on the principle that if there is fracture and the fracture is not displaced and possibly broken again and reset it will not heal. The problem comes when there is displacement or even loss of a piece of bone. If the bone does not fix well it will heal in angulated form with associated pains and deformity. Nowadays the traditional bone setters too ask for X-Ray.
Though it will sound bias coming from a medical doctor, but the truth is that in serious cases of fracture, traditional bone setters could become negative. Right now I have three neighbours who had to resort back to orthodox or othopaedic surgery after wasting time and money on traditional bone healers.
I will suggest you go to an othopaedic centre or unit for proper assessment and treatment.
