Rehabilitation of fracture is the act of restoring an injured part to its former state through proper therapy and training,so as to improve the quality of life. After proper union of fracture, it is desirable that the joints regain normal functions and shape, which is why rehabilitation is an inevitable treatment principle in fracture management 1. Acharya Sushruta, the pioneer in surgery, holds novelty in devising rehabilitative techniques for fracture management. These principles when properly implemented can effectively heal the post fracture complications like pain, restricted mobility and joint stiffness 2. An attempt has been made to explore the concept of rehabilitation in Ayurveda in light of conventional modalities.
