Dislocated bone


To fix a dislocated bone, your doctor may recommend a few treatment options depending on where your injury has occurred and how severe your bone condition is. These include:

  • Reduction – an attempt to bring your bones back to normal position using physical force. Your doctor may give you an anesthetic to ensure this process is not very painful
  • Immobilization – process of holding your bone or joint in place using a cast, splint or brace. Based on your injury, your doctor will decide how long the immobilization stays on you
  • Surgery – If the other two processes fail, your doctor will recommend a surgery to correct the position of your bone. This is quite common in shoulder dislocations
  • Rehabilitation – Gradual physiotherapy and other programs to help you restore the motion and range of motion of your joint

Ayurveda also believes in manual manipulation to adjust bones to their proper positions and then apply bandages in some form to mobilize them.

Additionally, Ayurveda also recommends a combination of healthy diet (ahar) and lifestyle changes (vihar) in order to manage the condition effectively. These include:
