Many of the new techniques are developed for the management as per the condition. Acharya Sushruta described exclusively about fracture, its etiology, classification and various modalities of the management. Bhagna in ancient period were commonly encountered problem occurs in wars and attacks by animals etc but in the present time these are commonly as a result of RTA. Bhagna was explained by Acharaya Sushruta depending upon nature of trauma, shape of fracture, displacement of fracture fragments and fracture with or without wound. If it occurs in the bone it is called as Kand bhagna (bone fracture) and in the joint it is called as Sandhimoksha (dislocation).

Conservative modalities includes Kushabandha, Alepa, Chakrayoga, Taila Droni, etc are still relevant.
