The ‘Puthur Kattu’ (Bone Setting) experience in Chennai

The ‘Puthur Kattu’ (Bone Setting) experience in Chennai

Two months ago my dad tore a ligament on his right shoulder while carrying my daughter Afifa out of a car. Actually we thought he dislocated his shoulder because of a very audible ‘crack’ emanating there. He is all but 65 years young so you can imagine what pain he must be going through. Well we went to St. Isabella’s Hospital in Mylaopre in Chennai and the doctor told that he had not dislocated his shoulder but tore a ligament. He also told us that it will heal automatically in 3-4 weeks, and to just keep the hand in a sling. A month passed with no improvement. So we consulted another orthopaedic who had a curious way of treating it! Everyday for the next 2 weeks he kept twisting and turning his arm and giving ‘electric shock’! He also gave a cream to apply in the night. This treatment only added to his agony.

Finally we finally decided to give it the ultimate treatment as suggested by a lot of people. The famous “Puthur Kattu” or “Puttur Kattu” (pronounced Puth-oor kat-tu) a bandage of sorts. Puthur (Puttur) is a silent Andhra village, near Tirupati, almost on the border of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. It was here that this treatment originated in 1881 and is still here to treat thousands. It is treatment using herbs mixed with egg-white.

Puthur Kattu

Puthur Kattu

This Clinic is located in Gopalapuram in Chennai. The doctor or specialist comes here once a week on Thursday. On Wednesday tokens are issued for 10 rupees each to patients who want this treatment. The time is mentioned on the tokens. It usually starts around 6 am on Thursday. I got the token on Wednesday and the time was for 6am on Thursday. We went there the next day at 6am. There were so many people around. The youngest was probably around 3-4 months and the oldest around 85 years! Some for the first time but most were for their 2nd or 3rd time. People with bones broken on the arms, legs, hips and elsewhere came. It was a sore sight. Couldn’t stand the pain these people seemed to go through. The young ones were crying. So were the adults! Such pain.

All the patients were put in a room and in the first 10 people were called into another room. This room consisted of 5 high white benches. Each patient occupied half of each bench. After a few patients were done with my dad’s name was called and we went in. We took the xrays we had taken previously in St.Isabella’s hospital. We told told the attender about the problem. He didn’t even need the xray. He said xrays don’t show the tear. Each bench had 2 attenders. There was only one doctor, Mr.Raju. The attender told us to buy 3 eggs and 2 metres of used cloth which was sold outside. Once bought he took the cloth and tore it into pieces and tied it around dad’s torso. Then he broke the eggs into a steel plate containing herbs. Only the egg-white was used. The we waited for the doctor to come to us. He finished with patients one by one and ‘fixed’ or ‘set’ bones and let the attendants finish bandaging the patients. If there were bones to be set, bamboo sticks were cut and used for support wherever necessary.

He came to dad and we explained the problem. After feeling dad’s right shoulder he said don’t worry and it would be alright after 2 ‘kattus’. First he applied the herbal mixture with egg-white on his shoulder and then took some cotton and put that over the application. Then he applied more of this green herb on top of this. Once he was done he went on to attend to the next patient. The attendant came and finished bandaging the rest. That was it. He then asked for money and took whatever was offered. He wrote a prescription and also told us to come 2 weeks later for the next ‘kattu’. Dad says he feels less pain now than before. Maybe it does work.

Treatment for broken bones is it’s speciality. It is sort of crude and no xray is used. The doctor just runs his fingers and know which bone is broken and what need to be done. This way of treatment is really painful and crude but it seems to work because of if many fan following. Maybe they should Tweet too!

All said and done I hope dad recovers from this soon. For those who want the address, I will post as it soon.

Doctors assured me that I will get fine once done with surgery and with the scientific proof available, I believe i can verify the doctor’s statement. But I do not know how curable this Puthur Kattu would be.

    Madhusudan

  16. Hi, nice of you to share these info…thanks very much…I got shoulder dislocation, both shoulders…hope to get treated…pls input your ideas if any…thanks!!

  17. will you give that pacha elai for the patient. Actually my brother got his shoulder rib broken. He is undergooing a belt given by bones and joints, at present he is in kongu engineering college erode. i would like to send him the pachai elai mix… will that be given for sending it to him. what is the procedure for that. Am in chennai Tharamani.
    9677420038

  18. Please contact the centre for more details. As far as I know they dont give any pacha elai. It is all done in the centre itself. They just prescribe some tablets along with the treatment. So please do call or visit them for more details.

  19. what they do for shoulder dislocation i mean do they broke the shoulder bone and treat it or just apply that herb on tha hand

  20. one of my friend’s son broke his leg bone while playing cricket and doctors have inserted one steel rod for support but he walks with a stick with difficulty. kindly advise if this case can be treated by puttur doctor. thanks

  21. Raja… usually for a dislocation, they just relocate and apply herbs. It is best you go and check directly.

  22. Ahmed. Please take an xray (latest) and visit them. It is best you get direct advice.

  23. I’ve got a problem with my left knee joint. I used to play football regularly before. Last 1 yr onwards i used to feel the pain in the knee joint whenever i play for 3-4 times. Recently i’ve undergone an MRI Scan after which the doctor said its a problem called – Chondromalacia patella. I had some medicines but to no effect. Can i get this cured ? I’m from Cochin , Kerala. Is there any centre here in Kerala ?

  24. Im not sure about it Deepak. You have to contact them for more details. Please also check regarding centre in Kerala.

  25. Will they treat fractured bones?

  26. Yes they do treat fractures. They also treat if your fracture is set in the wrong position. In that case they fracture it again in the same place and fix properly. It may sound crude.

  27. Here there are many places you can find out for the “Puthur Kattu”,. I believe in Vadapalani, Opp. to “Laxman Sruthi” there is one place called “24 Hrs puthur kattu” where they have done the plaster in 24/7 base,. and also one more place in Purasaiwalkam which they are coming on weekly basis as same as above. Tokens are been issued on Tuesday Morning and you might get an oppintment on the same day where as you need to go very early morning (4 to 5AM)……Please any one nearest that place please go and get their contact details and post here, so that it would help many people who have problem in Bone fracture. Gopi.

  28. Thanks for the useful info Gopi.

  29. Dear Sir,

    My father is undertreatment of puttur , actully his left hip bone broken on 19.05.11 . He is 65 years old and very tall and fatty person.So, whether this treatment will be usefull for him.Please Reply.

  30. Hi Dinesh.

    Im sorry to hear about your father. It is indeed a difficult time for him.

    I am not sure if it will work for him, but every bone setting, either normal or traditional, is based of positioning the bone into position and keeping it that way till the bone sets naturally. Puthur is a rather crude way of setting it without any pain killers etc. Once a bone is placed correctly, depending on your age, the bone sets. It takes more time for aged people. On condition of his age and weight, I recommend you first visit a hospital and do it there. There will be less pain and suffering for him.

    My regards to him and prayers for him to get well soon.

  31. geetika sharma Says: June 7, 2011 at 3:18 pm

    i am searching for the physicians who are doing bone setting in the traditional way. can you please tell me that how can i cantact dr. pratap raju?

    thanks

  32. Im not sure how, but you can contact one of the clinics. You can call and find out. Most probably he would be visiting places. Call and find out.

  33. Hey Ravoof. How’s your father’s ligament? Any better? Dislocated shoulder here, so a similar ligament problem, that is.

  34. Thanks Droog. He is better, but age has got up with him.

    Have you been to the clinic. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

  44. Lower back pain has now become a very common problem. It can be due to many reasons. Have you visited any doctor and taken MRI or CT scan? It could be due to muscle or bone. So go to a specialist first and diagnose the problem. I dont think Puthur is a good option. I wish you a speedy recovery.

  60. Chaitanya ur dad problem is a different one . Because it is ancle problem . It is really difficult to cure ancle probs because ancle is major part of our body and when we stand or walk moore pressure is on ancle only . Instant solution is not available , but by doing regular exercises he can recover . As my dad said , every dad take a bucket of hot water and add some salt to it . Ask ur father to keep legs in bucket and shake . Practise it. This may be useful to ur father.

    Hi ,

    My dad who is of 63 age have got a bone crack in wrist, is it better have a puttur kattu for a bone crack as i hear some pf my friends saying for bone crack in puttur kattu they will break the bone and again put a puttur kattu.

    Regards

  89. Is it a crack or broken? Usually what happens is if it is a crack, they just put some medicine (herbs etc) and put a bandage and give oral medicines to take. If it is completely broken, they put it back in position and then bandage it. This is usually painful. The other case is if the broken bone healed in the wrong way, they would break the bone in the same place and then fix it properly. This id very painful. I would not recommend this for your dad at this age. Try to consult a regular doctor first.

    I hope you dad recovers soon. Give my regards.

  90. Hi Ravoof,

    Thanks for your response, My dad have been treated with puttur kattu by doctor near chintadripet as he also said its a crack only need to put two rounds of puttur kattu.

    Regards
    JothiBabu.B

  91. very good to hear. wishing him a speedy recovery.
