Tendon/Ligament Formula

Tendons, ligaments and sinews, called "Jin" in TCVM, are the
most vulnerable body parts in athletic animals.  Tendon-ligament
injuries, including bowed tendons, are perhaps the most dreaded
of all problems in competitive horses, especially racehorses.  No
allopathic medicine or surgery has proven to be effective, and
recurrence of the same injury is common.  Six months of rest is
generally recommended following those treatments to allow the
tendons/ligaments to regain their strength.

Chinese herbal medicines have been used for treatment of
martial arts injuries for centuries.  They also prevent injuries
by specifically strengthening tendons and ligaments.  The Liver
dominates and controls the tendons and ligaments by supplying
and nourishing them with Blood and Yin.  Weakness or poor
growth of tendons and ligaments is usually considered to be
Liver Yin/Blood Deficiency.  The key to treating
tendon/ligament problems is to nourish Liver Yin and Blood.

Tendon/Ligament Formula focuses on nourishing Liver Yin and
Blood and strengthening ligaments and tendons.  It can be used
for chronic ligament and tendon problems.  In order to hasten
healing of injuries, combine the formula with topical application
of Relief Salve (K9010).  After three months of administering
Chinese herbal medications to affected horses, there was
sonographic evidence of completely healed tendons.

Weakness or poor growth of tendon and ligament, chronic
