The Pom that had reflexology!
I invited Rodney to send his story to me on his return home……and received his email yesterday! Yaye! Thanks, Rodney (happy for me to use his name: )
MIND OVER MATTER.
In September 2006 I had a fall from a low-level roof (2 meters), resulting in the following injuries.
- Double fracture of the skull (front)
- Fractured cheekbone (left side)
- Broken nose.
- Ruptured stomach
- Haematoma in lower stomach
- 4 fractures of the pelvis (Left side)
After being in traction for 34 days (flat on my back), I was given Physiotherapy at the hospital.
This lasted for 11 days, after which I was told I would never be able to walk again unaided. (Mind over Matter).
I took myself off to a private Physio, who said she would have a go at getting me walking again unaided.
It started with 3 visits per week for the first 2 years.
Then 2 visits for a further 1 year.
Followed by another 2 years of once a week.
After a couple of years, I used a Reflexologist, once a week for about 4 years.
The result is I play Badminton once a week.
Go to the Gym 4 mornings a week.
I also belong to the U3A. and am a member of 2 walking groups.
So much for NOT taking the results as fact.
My Reflexologist eventually retired; – so I went back to the Physio, then, after a year or two, I found a new Reflex Spa.
This is where I sill go whenever I feel I could do with some extra help.
My age when I had the accident was 70.
I am now 82. and still walking unaided.
There may be snow on the roof, but the fire has not yet gone out for life.(roll on summer UK)!
Hopefully, I will see you next year, when I visit Terrigal.
Warm regards and best wishes.
