ABSTRACT

Background: Asthibhagna (fracture) means physically handicapped in general assumptions but it is more than that. Fracture not only restricts the physical movements but also cuts the social, economical, psychological movements of the patient. If proper management of Asthibhagna in suitable period is not done then it may leads to the permanent disability. Aim: In the treatment of fracture the anatomical union is not only the ultimate aim but also attention must be paid to avoid or minimize the forthcoming complications. It is an effort to evaluate the merits and demerits of oral preparation, its effectiveness, and the percentage of time period saved for union of bones. Experimental: 60 patients of Asthi-bhagna were diagnosed on the basis of sign & symptoms -pain, swelling, tenderness, crepitus, deformity and loss of function. Abha Guggul 2 tablet of 500mg and Gandha taila 10 drops twice a day after food with luke warm milk were administered orally. The patients were assigned in three groups consisting of 20 patients each excluding dropouts. In each group closed manipulative reduction followed by Immobilization with Plaster of Paris (POP) was done. The medicine was given to the patient for particular duration depending upon the site of fracture and till evidence of union is achieved. Results: The overall result in Group A i.e. Abha Guggul, 25% patients were got complete cure, 35% patients were showed marked relief and 40% patients were showed moderate response. In Group B i.e. Gandha Taila, 55% patients were got complete cure, 40% patients were showed marked relief and 5% patient was showed moderate response. In Group C i.e. placebo, 15% patients were got complete cure, 25% were showed marked relief, 55% patients were showed moderate response and 5% patient was got mild improvement after completion of treatment. Mean percentage of time period save in Group A is 26.04%, in group B is 30.6% and Group C is 1.875. Conclusion: The medicines acts as an absorbent of discharges and haematoma, reduces swelling, pain and tenderness clears the blockage of channels, depresses the wound and promotes the healing processes and ultimately unites the fracture bones. The present study reveals that Abha Guggulu and Gandha Taila were found helpful in bone healing without prescribing calcium preparations and multi-vitamins.
