Έλκος κνήμης αντιμετωπίζεται με ρεφλεξολογία! - Leg ulcer treated with reflexology!

Reflexology on a 30 year old man with a long-standing leg ulcer prior to surgery...
I was asked if reflexology would help to heal a long-standing leg ulcer on a 30 year old man prior to being assessed suitable for surgery for a hip replacement due to osteoporosis. The aim was to produce a clean dry wound which would then be assessed by his health provider.

We only had three days before his health advisers would give him their decision. This man is on crutches whilst he awaits his operation and so his mobility is compromised. The larger photograph shows the ulcer before treatment with an open freshly bleeding wound, a swollen painful knee (top of photo) and a swollen immobile ankle (below). Protocol was daily treatment for half hour duration on the affected side with a supporting general reflexology treatment on the unaffected side. The second (smaller) photograph shows the ulcer 3 days later with a dry compact wound, reduced swelling and a reported disappearance of the knee pain. The man was able to rotate his ankle for the first time in years. This helped him continue with between treatment exercises to promote circulation. Tomorrow his health advisers will decide whether the wound is dry enough to schedule his operation. Bye the way, this man had been treated for this ulcer (which was originally much bigger) for over a year, including a skin graft that didn't take. His operation has been cancelled three times due to the ulcer not healing.
