Colles Fracture It’s Treatment With The Herbal Remedies


The radius is the most commonly broken and is the largest of the two bones in the forearm. The distal part of the radius with the other carpal bones forms the wrist joint. The broken wrist joint in which the radius bone breaks and is bent backward is called a Colles Fracture. In this article we will discuss the cause, risk factors, symptoms, and diagnostic criteria for Colles Fracture, also we will discuss the management of fracture in Ayurveda with ayurvedic medicines and panchakarma therapies.

Colles Fracture


Colles Fracture is a type of fracture of wrist bone in which the broken end of the radius is bent backward. These types of fractures are very common due to an increased rate of use of motor vehicles and accidents occurring. Though fractures do not occur only due to this reason. A fall from stairs or a person falling unconscious may also cause Colles Fracture. This fracture may also cause damage to the median nerve that is just behind the wrist bones and can cause various complications that can be mild to severe. It usually occurs about three to five centimeters proximal to the radio-carpel joint. Fracture becomes easier and more common in a person with osteoporosis and damages the bone to more extent than a person without osteoporosis.

Ayurvedic Aspect

Asthi Bhanga is described as a bone fracture in Ayurveda. The Colles fracture (Wrist fracture) or radius bone fracture occurs due to the sudden jerk on the wrist. Though the causes are the same in both contexts the pathology differs as in Ayurveda the bone fracture is then related to the presence of excess Vata dosha in the affected areas and the site of fracture. The herbal treatment described in Vedas for the management of Asthi Bhanga is described further in the article.
