"It wasn't even a bad fall, but my wrist just snapped!"
The only good news in that pronouncement was that it was her wrist and not her hip. My new patient, Edith, came to see if there were natural solutions for her recently diagnosed osteoporosis. Her wrist was easily set and recovered about 80% of her pre-fracture strength and mobility. Hip fractures have a much greater impact on quality of life, usually involving a hospitalization, long period of rehabilitation, loss of normal strength and even an increased risk of death.
