When it comes to unorthodox practice of medicine, a lot of people tend to have their reservations about visiting traditional healers. For Ekemini Williamson, he has a traditional bone setter to thank for still keeping his legs.
Shortly after a fellow Twitter user had advised against visiting traditional bone setters, Ekemini used the opportunity to share the story of how a bone setter healed him when a western doctor had advised him to amputate his left leg after he suffered a fracture.
He wrote: "Well, I owe my limbs to a traditional bone doctor. In 2001 I had a bad fracture on my left leg. A western medical personnel recommended amputation but a traditional bone setter fixed the bones and I was able to walk again in exactly 1 month and 26 days (May 1 - June 26)."
Going further, he added: "Now I walk normally, play football and even completed a rigorous military training without incident. If I hadn't visited that traditional bone setter, I would've been an amputee, needing crutches, wheelchair or a prosthetic limb to move. A traditional bone setter saved my limb.
There are many more like me, saved by traditional bone setters when western medical practitioners couldn't help or even repaired a bad job by doctors. I've seen and heard many testimonies. Traditional bone setters really do help especially in areas where there are no hospitals."
