Description of the experience:
Last year my father broke his back, a lumbar vertebra, falling from a ladder. He was lucky, but the following months were very difficult.

In the first month he had to remain immobile in bed, eat, change clothes and every movement of the base was very complicated and painful.

He was very concerned about the timing of recovery, and very worried about not heal completely.
Every day cured his back with the magneto, two hours a day.

After about two months, the worst was over, he could walk, eat and sleep without sitting in the trunk, had regained a small independence.

About the third month, the back was healed and began rehabilitation, after one year, the physical recovery was nearly 100%.

The doctors have advised to practice exercises to maintain muscle tone but with the disappearance of pain
