Ayurvedic Medicine

Swelling persists after the surgery following fracture in some of them. The injury to the surrounding tissues will lead to swelling and proper rest will help to heal. It normally reduces within 4weeks after surgery. The rehabilitative exercise after the surgery will also help to reduce the swelling.

Ayurvedic medicines like MahaRasnadi Kvath - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food twice daily, Yograj Guggulu and Asthiposhak Calcium Supplement Tablet can be taken for a month and then reviewed.

Include horse gram, cissus quadrangularis, ajwain seeds, curry leaf, garlic, turmeric and sesame seeds. Reduce excess salt, spicy, canned foods, sweet, cold refrigerated foods and oil. Please do have the regular checkups.

Dear Guest

You can use some herbal oils and some medicines which will help ease pressure and reduce swelling .But you must also get it evaluated for its swelling because sometimes there may be a pathology.For that you may consult an Ortho ,

Oils like Pirant oil is good for reducing swelling. Medicine like Pirant have things like Gugulu which act on swelling.

Arjunarishta and Poonarnavarishta will also be good for you.

keep writing of luck
