FRACTURES Ayurvedic Treatment

Your doctor will usually recognize your fracture by doing a physical examination, followed by a confirmatory X-ray scan.

Sometimes when an X-ray scan fails to detect a fracture, which is quite common with wrist fractures, hip fractures and stress fractures, your doctor may recommend some other tests such as:3

  • CT scan – imaging test that uses x-rays to take multiple images of the bone to detect broken bones and other damage
  • MRI scan - common imaging technique that takes multiple images of the soft tissues around your dislocated joint to find out how bad the injury is
  • Bone scan – uses small amount of radioactive dye to reveal problems with bones and bone metabolism

These tests also help you doctor if the tissues surrounding your bones have been damaged.3
