The Pain of a Broken Bone

I had the unfortunate pleasure of getting my first broken bone a few months ago. It happened one afternoon when I had a pretty nasty fall. I was walking down some steps outside of a court house after coming from jury duty, when I slipped and fell right down. Luckily there were people around to help me get medical attention. I broke my shin bone and had to be put in a cast while it healed. In order to make things heal at a quicker rate, I received PRP treatment in Westchester County, NY. It’s amazing what doctors will think of these days.

The treatment was just a simple injection after having some blood taken and spun around in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. It’s so cool how these treatments are made. They’re making medical science move one step closer to creating an environment where people can survive just about anything with a simple treatment that can be done in minutes. A broken bone is something that won’t go away in a day, but knowing that healing time can be shaved off of it is a relief. I bet people who have even worse injuries are really benefiting from this.

Since the date of the treatment, my bone has healed completely, and I have full functionality in my leg. I probably won’t need to go to the court house any time soon, so I won’t be on those stairs, but I’ll be careful about walking down any more in the future. I’d rather not break any more bones, given how painful that first break was. Even though the treatment worked wonders for me, I just can’t stand to experience that type of pain, even with pain medication to dull it. I also would rather not miss any more work days.
