Sounds Great and Feels even Better!
Massage can really help him relax and let go of the trauma that is in the cellular level of the accident. Remember to move very, very, slow, you might even want to purchase some books to help guide you on massaging it. As you are moving slowly use some med. long strokes, remember to see the arm Perfect Whole and Complete, regardless of the past, just hold the highest for him and see it healing with each rub. Gradually you can move the arm as you brace it and he has totally let go of the worry, met where he is at with whatever you do and honor it, but move with confidence some other force is guiding you; A very good healing cream that i like is;
By Jason called Cooling Tea Tree Oil Pain Reliever Mineral Gel, you can purchase usually at a health food store; I also like to mix pure lavender oil and a small amount of tea tree with an oil like peanut or walnut oil to massage with. Lavender is very healing! Thank you for your love and support and caring!

Hi, fran.

Listen to Terri-Lynn and get this child to physical therapy at once. Any doc who thinks his job is done when the cast comes off is not a very good doc.

Every day that goes past without physical therapy will increase the chance that this will be a permanent deformity.

Let us know what happens.

Walt
