Angela's Story

I want to share my experience that I have seen with nerve regeneration and bone healing with my daughter Sienna after she fell and shattered her elbow joint a year and a half ago.

It is important to understand how bad this injury was and then the nature of how it healed in the following months, it was quite extraordinary.

Initially after the X-rays the injury didn't seem so bad but then after the weekend when the consultant saw the X-ray on the Monday morning it was clear she needed surgery as soon as possible.

Before the surgery there was not really very much pain. I was told it would be about half an hour of surgery but when they started to operate it was much more complicated. Sienna had to endure two and a half hours of surgery where they wired the joint.

As soon as Sienna came out of surgery she was in a very distressed state and reacted extremely badly to the morphine they had given her during the operaton, she was also in terrible pain which I found so upsetting. I wrapped her immediately in the Nikken Cocoon Sleeping Bag*, to help calm her nervous system from the shock and trauma she was feeling.

Unfortunately she was in extreme pain but she had had all the pain killers she was allowed at that point. I had the Nikken seat with me which actually I sat on because I felt so distressed. I placed one of the Nikken insoles inside the sling in the area of the operation around her elbow. I put the Nikken Powerband round her neck.

She spent two nights in hospital. The first night was very stressful with her being constantly woken up to check that her fingers were ok and she could move them. They were very painful. I had also filled up bottles of water from the Pimag Waterfall which were an absolute blessing as Sienna was dehydrated and her system needed to start to flush out the painkillers, the morphine and anaesthetic.

The day after the operation she was up out of bed colouring, smiling and much happier.

When we got home from the hospital she slept in with me for a couple of weeks within the Sleep System which was so important for her nervous system because of the pain she was experiencing and the trauma she had been through - we had all been through a lot. The operation had left her totally exhausted and depleted.

I started to give her Nikken CalDenx supplements to aid with the bone healing.

In the couple of weeks following the operation her arm was in a half cast with two wires. It was clear though that two of her fingers had nerve damage from the operation probably because the ulnar nerve had been disturbed. They were very painful, and curled, she couldn't straighten them. I was told that it would take potentially a year or so to recover, as nerve regeneration is very slow, but it is far quicker in children because they are naturally growing all the time. Also that she may never be able to have full extension of her arm. I found it all hugely upsetting.

Once the plaster came off her arm was in an L shape and she didn't want anyone to touch it and she didn't want to move it. At this stage I was able to put a Powerband bracelet around the upper part of her arm. Her arm was constantly in a sling- she even slept with it on.

The surgeon told me not to massage the arm but from energy testing I felt it was what was needed, and along with physiotherapy bit by bit she was able to start to move it. It was incredibly stiff. Then I put the Kenko Wrist wrap around the area once the wound had healed with a Kenko Power chip magnet inside. These helped greatly with the discomfort and in keeping the area warm.

All the time she had the power band on day and night, the sleep system at night and after school in the following weeks she was exhausted so I would wrap her up in the Cocoon Sleeping Bag as soon as she got home. Lots and lots of the Waterfall Water. Lots of sleep too.

What I found was she did not need pain relief for as long as I thought she would have to. What I believe is that the Nikken products provided the right environment for her body to heal from the shock and trauma of the accident while aiding the bone to heal and the nerves to regenerate.

Two of her fingers though seemed permanently clawed and there was of course the worry of how the joint would long term recover. But I couldn't focus on that as I had to just take each day as it came and trust that she would heal in time.

Step by step more flexibility came to the joint and after about 6 months one day she just said to me "Look Mummy I can straighten my fingers!" I was so shocked it happened just like that - suddenly they were almost normal again. She now has full extension of her elbow.

I am so very grateful that we had all the Nikken products and the knowledge of which products to use purely because my husband had suffered his stroke just 6 months previous to all this happening and we had seen and continue to see how they have supported him and us all as a family.
