Herbs that heal broken and fractured bones
Although they can hardly be considered a common occurrence, serious injuries do occasionally happen during martial arts training; among the more serious are broken bones. The body is made up of a disproportionate number of small bones compared with the number of large ones. Ironically the weapons most used by the martial artist, the hands, contain many of these small bones, increasing their likelihood of being injured. By far more fractured bones occur in the hands during sparring, actual combat, and conditioning than in any other body part.
The legs, which contain the largest bones in the body, are a common point of attack by sweeps and kicks. Although surprisingly resilient, they are after the hands the site where fractures most frequently occur.
Broken bones are perhaps the most debilitating injury that a martial artist can suffer. When such injuries occur during combat, the loss of a weapon can put the combatant at a serious disadvantage. This speaks strongly to the importance of developing a daily regime of conditioning both hands and shins.
When treating broken bones the following formulas are standard prescriptions that are frequently used in Hit Medicine. A common feature of these highly regarded traumatic injury formulas is their ability to reduce pain and accelerate healing, which will reduce the amount of training time that is lost.
Although the formulas are somewhat similar, each has its own peculiarity which we will briefly describe. Click on the below links for more information.
