  • 1. The Ultimate Rehabilitation of MankindTo Make an Individual a Complete Personality In association with May God Rehabilitate Mankind “BANDAGE TO SPLINTAGE”
  • 2. Our Ancient Culture of Health CareIn India, according to the ancient books of knowledge, health is considered as aprerequisite for achieving the supreme ends of life consisting of righteousness, wealth,artistic values and spiritual freedom. Preventive and curative aspects of diseases areconsidered as important components of the concept of positive health.Ayurveda deals elaborately with measures of healthful living during the entire span oflife and its various phases. Besides dealing with principles for maintenance of health, ithas also developed a wide range of therapeutic measures to combat illness. Theseprinciples of positive health and therapeutic measures related to physical, mental, socialand spiritual welfare of human beings. Thus Ayurveda became one of the oldest systemsof medicine dealing with both the preventive and curative aspects of life in a mostcomprehensive way.The Body MatrixLife in Ayurveda is conceived as the union of body, senses, mind and soul. The livingman is a conglomeration of three humours (Vata, Pitta &Kapha), seven basic tissues(Rasa, Rakta, Mansa, Meda, Asthi, Majja & Shukra) and the waste products of the bodysuch as faeces, urine and sweat. Thus the total body matrix comprises of the humours, thetissues and the waste products of the body. The growth and decay of this body matrix andits constituents revolve around food which gets processed into humours, tissues andwastes. Ingestion, digestion, absorption, assimilation and metabolism of food have aninterplay in health and disease which are significantly affected by psychologicalmechanisms as well as by bio- fire (Agni).
  • 3. Health and SicknessHealth or sickness depends on the presence or absence of a balanced state of the totalbody matrix including the balance between its different constituents. Both the intrinsicand extrinsic factors can cause disturbance in the natural equilibrium, giving rise todisease. This loss of equilibrium can happen by dietary indiscrimination, undesirablehabits and non-observance of rules of healthy living. Seasonal abnormalities, improperexercise or erratic application of sense organs and incompatible actions of the body andmind can also result in creating disturbance of the existing normal balance. The treatmentconsists of restoring the balance of disturbed body-mind matrix through regulating diet,correcting life-routine and behavior, administration of drugs and resorting to preventivePanchkarma and Rasayana therapy.Ayurvedic treatment consists of eight specialities and "Shalya Tantra" (Surgery) is oneof them. Treatment for fractures and Dislocations comes under Shalyatantra. (Surgery.)Though Ayurveda Surgery is not practiced nowadays, the system of fracture treatmentand few others like treatment for fistula and some other Para surgical methods still exist.The names given for the orthopeadic treatment were" Kadum Bindum Vedakama " – (Treatment for Fractures and Dislocations) " Gas Vedakama " – ("Gas" means trees & " Vedakama " means treatment – Hence thetreatment done with the help of wooden splints, barks of trees and various herbs; it wasknown as Gas Vedakama).There are some other definitions too." Handi Vedakama " – Treatment done for reunion of fractured bones.It was an ancient system of treatment widely used through out the country from remotetimes.Types of orthopedic injuries and how they are handled by Traditional AyurvedicPractitioners1. FracturesFracture of bones without breaking of contact with the skin.Fracture of bones with break of contact of skin.The first types of lesions are most common. It could be treated after setting the two endsof the fractured bones. In the second type of fracture the broken ends of the bone projectsthrough the skin. Then it is necessary to clean the wound before the commencement oftreatment for the fracture.
  • 4. II. Dislocations of jointsA joint is defined as a place in the body where two or more bones meet. Dislocations aremost common in the joints of the lower and upper limbs and also in the cervical spine(neck area) and lumbar (low back) region of the backbone.III. SprainsThe destruction and damage caused to tendons, bursas and muscles of the joints causedby physical trauma to a joint, where the tendons are subjected to excessive torsion.Therefore destruction will take place to the tendon where it is attached. Inflammation ofbone is followed by sprains. Massage may relieve the pain; but oedema is treated byusing drugs.IV. BruiseBones, muscles, joints and the skin are subjected to bruise and as a result there is aninflammation. Treatment depends on the extent of the lesion and also varies with thelocality. Warm fomentation could be applied in minor conditions; however, in severecondition, anti-inflammatory measures are needed.In traditional treatmentTender handling and the methods of bandaging help to overcome most of the abovementioned complications. Also, it causes less soft tissue damage. As they do not treat thepatient under anesthesia the handling is done very carefully.The wooden splints “ Mellum” and “ Patthus ” promotes callus formation and quicken the healing. The light splints andthe soothing oils are comfortable. Turmeric and salt are two basic substances used whenpreparing a medicinal “ Mellum ” and “Patthus ”. These ingredients contain antisepticand anti-inflammatory properties.What are SplintsTraditional Ayurvedic Physicians do not use plaster casts that lead to high degree of jointstiffness in Intra-articular fracture. Instead they use splints, which are made of bamboosticks and bark of a special medicinal tree. Splints are prepared in different sizes.When selecting splints the length and the width of the splint should be equal to that of thefractured limb of the body. A properly used splint performs a dual function. It not onlyserves as a rigid surface to the fractured bone, stimulating the function of the Periostium(outer layer of the bone) it also expedites the healing by improving its medicinalproperties. The other advantage of the splint is the pressure applied on the fracture couldbe altered and adjusted at will and they do not hinder the movability of the other joints.
  • 5. BandagesTraditional Physicians tie four knots in equal lengths around the four splints placed inposition on the fractured limb. Later a normal bandage covers it. This is renewedeveryday, allowing free mobility to the other adjacent joints.Example: Tibial shaft fracture placed in position with wooden splints is advantages,compared to plaster cast because of the liberation of knee and ankle with their freemovability. Splints are used instead of plaster casts. Plaster of Paris cast gets hardened byitself. It does not warrant free mobility to the other joints. Immobilization would alsoresult in permanent stiffness. Further when the edema of the affected part subsided aftersome time, it will not adhere to the organ of part thus creating enough space in betweenthe plaster and organ concerned. Using external medicinal wooden splints and bandagescould eliminate both these drawbacks. Traditional method of bandaging has no aftereffects. 1. (kosa) Sheath bandage for finger and toes; 2. (dama) Bandage for thigh tied at the hip and knee; 3. (swastika) A cross bandage used in joints; 4. (anuvellita) Spiral bandage for extremities; 5. (pratoli) Bandage for penis and neck; 6. (mandala) A type of circular bandage; 7. (sthagika) Sheath bandage for fingers, toes and penis; 8. (yamaka) Bandage for two wounds simultaneously; 9. (khatva) Four-tailed bandage for chin and face; 10. (cina) Four-tailed bandage for eye injuries; 11. (vibandha) Bandage employed for the trunk; 12. (vitana) Cephaline bandage; 13. (gophana) bandage for perineal region; 14. (pancangi) Bandage with five tails; 15. (utsanga) Sling bandage.
  • 6. The Traditional System of treatment for bone disorders which were based on practicalexperience and training throughout its long period of existence vary mainly upon thelocal fauna and flora with special medicinal preparations. A person who had been trainedin this system of Traditional Medicine uses his five senses in clear judgment for theclinical conclusion and also uses his 6th sense the " Manas " (wisdom) in order toadminister the appropriate therapy. He also uses his skilled hands both in the procedure,which leads him to the correct diagnosis and applies his spiritual ability etc. for histreatment. Patients are content and happy with the mental and physical care provided bythe Traditional Physician.Though Ayurveda Surgery is not practiced nowadays, the system of fracture treatmentand few others like treatment for fistula and some other Para surgical methods still exist.Modern Culture of Health CareDue to cultural invasion over a period of time and support of the political administrationsfor allopathic medicine, In India and other Asian Countries, the overall healthcarepractice and therefore, the concept of rehabilitation has lost its holiness of treating theindividual human being as a whole. In 1980s, the concept of rehabilitation and inparticular, the physical rehabilitation is rudimentary in practice (less than a 1 %) whencompared to the developed, industrialized nations. The availability of rehabilitationproducts and services are scanty that too limited to big hospitals of metro cities. Doctorswere not able to prescribe the right rehabilitation products due to non-affordability forimport of such products. The suffering patients were left to the mercy of friends andrelatives who might have rendered helping hands in sending such products from abroadbelatedly.In 1990s, the demand for quality healthcare was growing due to healthcare policy of thegovernments and upcoming of state and private healthcare facilities with advancedstudies in Medicine. A very few, small companies were there in India, restricted to localareas supplying poorly designed rehabilitation products like soft collars, back belts andabdominal binders. The concept of Trauma and Critical Care for injured / diseasedpatients was just came up for discussions in the medical forums in New Delhi and othermajor cities of India.In the first International Conference on Trauma and Critical Care in India (1996 NewDelhi), MGRM introduced a wide range of Physical Rehabilitation of Splints and Aids,hitherto known only in international medical books and research journals.Dr. K.V.R. Murthy, Founder of MGRM introduced for the first time in India, the muchneeded, Physical Rehabilitation Splints and Aids of International Quality to serve thephysically suffering mankind due to

  • 15. In 2000s, the awareness about physical rehabilitation and the availability of qualityhealthcare has grown in India and other Asian countries to 10 –11 %. Thanks to bothgovernment and private corporate hospitals for their tremendous efforts in providing stateof the art healthcare facilities to the needy people of developing world. “Search and research are the essence of mankind. The resultant awareness leads to an individual’s physical, psychological, social and spiritual evolution. Extensive scientific and medical research has proved that the concept of rehabilitation is not limited to physical rehabilitation. Ultimate rehabilitation for the human race is one that can recognize and simultaneously encompass all the above elements that make an individual, a complete personality. “ Dr. K. V. R.
