DR, My practice involes mainly dealing with clinical injuries, like fractures, dislocations, variou cases dealt in an orthopedic clinic. 1. complete imbolization with a splint is required for 3-4 weeks of treatment. 2. Massage(under surface of knee, around the knee with the leg straiht, and along the ligament site with the knee flexed in a gentel manner) and bandage with Pichu of Kshatantaka thylam.we usually use kshatantaka thylam as pichu for bandages for the first 2-3 treatments done on alternate days as an op-patient, usually depending on the medial or lateral collateral ligament, the splint should be adjusted and remeber not to use very tight bandage as it can lead to swelling in the ankle. and later bandage which is like a herbal plaster for the next 3-4 bandages done at a 3 day interval utill the patient is able to walk without pain or support. 3. later slowly remove the splint and advise patient to continue to apply external application of oil twice daily from home, early morning and night at bed time gentel massage the knee.after 1-hour to wipe dry. do ask the patient not to give any form of wet foamentation etc as this will harden the tissue fluid leading to stiffness.... 4, later to only walk with support of an elastic crape bandage for another 3 weeks. 5. Depending on the strenght of the knee you can decide if pradeshika kizhi treatment or Navara lepanam is required at a later date as a followup TREATMENT to get back the muscle tone, ligament strength and weight bearing capacity of the knee. 6. Advise the patient to refrain from any sports activities in the future, like jumping from height, to be careful while walking on un even surface, slippery surface and sand as this may cause reccurence in the current condition.
