Earlier this year I broke both wrists in a motorcycle accident…
… and was effectively disabled. I was in constant pain, totally incapable of even washing or feeding myself and could move only my fingertips (my wrists were one solid swollen lump). Worse still, my livelihood and income were on-hold, being both a motorcycle courier and an occasional band performer on keyboards.
My hospital consultant and physiotherapist informed me that my injuries could take up to a year to fully heal, and that I would never wholly regain my old flexibility. I should expect to be on (strong) painkillers for several months, and unable to work for at least six months.
After just 6 weeks on Martina’s programme I progressed from being barely able to twitch my fingers, to being back on-the-road and on-stage, and completely free of painkillers. My consultant was amazed: new x-rays showed that fractures to the distal radius bones which had separated and compressed (shortening each arm by an inch!), had now completely healed although some residual soreness in the surrounding tissue did persist. Yes, I get twinges of pain occasionally – there are limits to how far I can twist my wrists and these limits do hurt when you reach them, but I see measurable improvements with each passing week.
Now, after 3 months, Martina’s tailored bone-health programme of specialised diet and targeted supplementation has literally been a life-saver for me. I have healed far faster that many half my age (and I’m 65 yrs young!).
