Ever Had A Bone Dislocation? Share Your Experience With Traditional Bone Setters by Barryseal: 10:45am On Sep 14, 2021
Over the years, mostly in my early teens, I have had the unfortunate experience of dealing with 4 dislocations, thanks to football, basketball and some rough play in school. I did my left elbow twice and suffered one dislocation on both wrist. Reflecting on the pains I had gone through on each of those challenging periods, I frankly would not wish it on my worst enemy. I often hear people complain about dental pain, I can testify that dental pain and dislocation no be mate.

I was once on the waiting cue at the bone setters place, a grown man, probably in his 50s was having his shoulder fixed, he cried and screamed so hard that he poo pooed on himself. I practically took to my heels when it got to my turn grin grin

I pray for total restoration for everyone going through this ordeal currently. The Lord is your strength.

Let me book space I will write about it soon, Back on the topic, it was a terrible experience. It happened on the eve of "end the SARS saga.
Those agbero who operate daily on southwest Nigeria got more energy since police and security was messed up on that period.
On that black Friday, about 5 of them came to my shop and gave me 3k said their Oga said I should give them a pair of Jean that I am selling 6k.
I was furious and willing to fight them because I saw them as lazy and stupid people.
Not long fight ensure, the removed dagger and was ready to stab me, I start running, with the force my right knee dislocated, that was the genesis of suffering from that month.
To end story, I slept in one local bone healer with plenty mosquitoes and bed bugs.
No toilet and plenty injection and pains is not something to write today.
Even now I do feel little pain after long walk.
Bone dislocation is dangerous

One trado woman almost made me lose my leg in 2019

Had an accident and the kind of pains I was my peeps thought I had a broken bone.

Without an x-ray peeps took me to trado woman.
She said I had a broken bone and kept on using mud on my leg and it was rottening internally because it was swollen from the accident and all I need at first were some antibiotics.
After 2days nurse who gave me initial first aid called and advised me to go for an x-ray quickly.
As I got the x-ray I was told nothing was wrong with me.
Went to see a doctor immediately and doc said if I had come 2 days later he would have referred me to FMC where they will cut the leg.

I have to do 3 minor Operations on that leg Sha

Came out with a big scar!

Exactly. What they know is hot water and herbs. Again, I think the ancient art of bone setting is fading away.

The best they can do is to also dislocate a chicken's leg and watch to see how it heals. Whatever happens, is exactly what would happen to you.

I have even heard stories where they said a traditional healer would call a bone fragment from site of motor vehicle accident to appear on the patient to aid the healing.


But on a serious note, although not the conventional wisdom in our local settings, traditional healers wouldn't be able to determine if a bone would need reduction, the angle and desired range of motion of the bone. Also, the chances of infection is high and the patient would have to endure excruciating pain. Additionally, other pathophysiological effects might not be well managed.

Not me, a friend's girl, they got knocked down by a speeding vehicle, the bone healer straightened both their legs in about a month and they've been fine ever since. Happened about 8 years ago, I sha follow them argue because I wanted them to go the hospital but they declined. They've been proving me wrong for 8 years grin
