What is Hip fracture Ayurvedic treatment


A Hip fracture is a fracture in one of the bones of the hip – most commonly occurring in the neck of the femur (the thigh bone). This can happen as a result of severe trauma or generally in older age due to a falling and weak bones.1

According to Ayurveda, compromises in bone movements can be caused due to various injuries including by slip/fall, pressure on joints, excessive movements, animal bites, striking, etc. When these compromises in bone movements lead to fractures, it is called as Asthi bhagna (Asthi – bone, bhagna –breakage). Fractures can be of two types2:

  • Sandhimukta - that is dislocation 
  • Kanda-bhagna - that is body fracture

As per Ayurveda the fractures at Hip region are classified to dislocation fractures (utpista).2
