The breakage of a bone to a partial or complete extent is known as a bone fracture. Simple (or closed) fractures include a clean break in the bone and don’t have an impact on the surrounding regions. However, in a compound (or open) fracture, the surrounding tissue and skin is also damaged and is much harder to heal as compared to simple fractures. The probability of infection is also higher in the second type of fractures.
Common causes of fractures
- Physical trauma such as injury or accident.
- Weakening of bones due to degenerative conditions such as osteoporosis.
The symptoms are experienced in the heel, arch, toes, ankle balls and any other surrounding region of the feet.
- Discolored skin near affected region.
- Unusual bending of affected area (Angulation).
- Injured region becomes incapable of bearing weight.
- Loss of mobility.
- Grating sensation in affected bone.
- Bleeding in the case of open fractures.
Siddha Healing for Fractures
Chakrasiddh adopts a non-intrusive and non-surgical approach towards healing wherein X-rays are only taken to compare the before and after condition of the patient. The alignment of bones and pain management is carried out through marma therapy, in combination with yoga and lifestyle improvements. No external medication is given to the patients as massage techniques are sufficient to relieve the patient of pain.
