My son suffered a buckle fracture last week during karate and has to wear a splint for a month. We’re going to try to speed up the healing with vibrational therapy and low-level laser therapy.
In addition to the vibrational platform, he uses an electronic toothbrush twice a day, and occasionally I’ll have him hold a set of hair clippers for a minute.
A simple laser pointer that you pick up from any office supply store does the trick. It has more than sufficient power to stimulate healing at the cellular level and it will penetrate through the splint.
If all goes well, we’ll have him out of the splint and back at the dojo in no time!
