3. Formulas for Sports Medicine
In Chinese Medicine, trauma and injury affects the normal circulation of the body and causes “qi and blood stasis” leading to the perception of pain. There is also the idea that cold and damp can penetrate areas of the body where the vital energy has been compromised. This can lead to arthritic pains with age that often increases with weather changes and is difficult to treat. In cases of acute trauma where ice seems indicated, use these topical formulas instead. In most cases, medical advice is to rest and elevate. By using these liniments, an injury can recover a lot sooner. The mechanism of action is reducing inflammation while dispersing congealed blood and fluids.
