Three cases including elbow dislocation along with horizontal hairline fractures of the Ulna and Radius, fracture of the clavicle and posterior fracture of the calcaneum of the left foot was presented to Thenna Ayurveda Hospital, Sri Lanka and managed according to Ayurveda basic principles and using both internal treatments and external applications of Ayurveda and Sri Lankan traditional medicines. X-rays were taken before the treatment to confirm the diagnosis and after the management to confirm the bone union. In all three cases, patients achieved normal function of the affected joint/bone and free from any other complains after five months of the follow-up.
