Hello Sarathi,

How are you feeling now? I hope the pain and inflammation has reduced by now. Are you at bed rest? Is it immobilized or have you started walking/working?

I have heard about Puttur Kattu. Although I do not practice it, I have come across a lot of patients who have taken that treatment for various problems - some got relief, some didn't. So I would not like to comment on it and its efficacy.

In my clinic, I treat such cases in a classical Ayurvedic way - in a non-invasive method. It includes taking of internal medicines like Kashayam and also arishtams like Balaarishtam. Along with that some external treatment like "Kizhi" and "Lepanam" will be done, where a paste of various medicines is applied.
The idea behind it is to apply heat and medicines to enhance healing and also strengthening the entire tissues surrounding the joint.

Take care.
