Ever since coming here to Dubai to pursue a career in construction, my friend has had nothing but great experiences to share to his folks back home in the UK. He works as a structural designer here and would often say that he has found his dream job. I can see from his photos that he is really having the time of his life and I am really happy for him. He is one of the most hardworking people I know and to see him enjoy doing the thing he does best, I can’t help but to be proud.
One day though, his usual travel photos on social media were replaced by a lengthy post saying that he figured in an accident. Not a major one but still had to be attended to. He suffered a few bruises and a dislocated knee due to a car accident. I called his mother and asked how he was doing, and whether he would have to undergo any kind of treatment. She said they were looking for best orthopedic surgeon in Dubai for him. He had to go through surgery to get his knee properly aligned once again, and thankfully, it was a complete success. Now, he is undergoing therapy, trying to build strength in his leg that was lost during the period he was unable to use it due to the injury.
From time to time, he would provide updates on his condition on social media. He even shared that his mom wants to quit work for the time being and look after his recovery personally, although it seems unnecessary given how fast has progress has been going. I personally visited him one day to see how he is recovering, and his dislocated knee is getting back to 100 per cent through the therapy and treatments.
Following his social media, I can tell that his recovery is going really well, with the professional help of his physicians and doctors. It made me realise how advanced medical technology is today, being able to provide treatment and therapy to complex injuries such as his with much success.
I have read somewhere that with chiropractic, Dubai patients who are suffering from musculoskeletal system can accelerate their recovery and reduce their recovery time. It’s like massage therapy but it focuses on manual therapy with a gentle approach, without involving any drug or surgery. And while it might sound a bit traditional, if it produces results, at the end of the day, that’s all that matters. The important thing is to make sure of the effectiveness of a particular treatment or therapy.
With all this in mind, it is kind of exciting to see what kind of other developments and new treatments may come around as the medical field continues to grow. At this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised to one day read news about a medical treatment that successfully treats a previously untreatable disease. Until then, we should all make sure to take good care of our bodies and health. You can also click here for other medical issues and surgeries like nose reshaping etc.
