Abstract

Fracture of both bones of forearm in adults is a difficult problem to treat. Management is generally surgical open reduction and internal fixation with compression plating of both radius and ulna fractures. Cast or brace immobilization is indicated in un-displaced fractures in patients who are not fit for surgery. But high rates of nonunion are associated with non-operative Management. According to Ayurveda, bhagna is the general term denoting fractures and dislocations of bone and joints respectively. In clinical practice bandaging using bamboo splints and local application of murivenna has a better result in the management of bhagna. In this case report, a 60 year old female patient presented with multiple, both bone fractures of forearm came to Salyatantra OPD. She was given punarnavadi kashaya, lakshaguggulu tablet, gandhataila internally and splinted bandage using murivenna. Rebandage was done weekly for 6 weeks. Patient got better symptomatic relief of pain, swelling and tenderness. She attained satisfactory improvement in the range of movement also.
