Ointment quickens the blood and dispels stasis, clears heat, disperses
swelling, and stops pain. This ointment was created by Zhou Guo-jun et al. at
the Guanzhou Qian Southeast Autonomous Region Chinese Medical Hospital.
Published research has shown this ointment to be 99% effective within three days
for the treatment of sprained ankle when treatment was initiated in the first 48
hours after injury and when combined with acupressure.
Instructions: Apply to the affected area and fix with a dressing. Change
daily. In addition, needle Shang Qiu (Sp 5), Jie Xi (St 41), Qiu Xu (GB 40), Kun
Lun (Bl 60), and/or Tai Xi (Ki3) depending on the site of sprain. For best
results, keep the affected limb elevated and restrict use. Acupressure at the
above points may also be used instead of acupuncture for home treatment by the
patient or a family member.
