Sprain of the soft tissues of the limbs refers to the sprain of the muscles, tendons and ligaments around the shoulders, elbows, hip joints, knees and ankles due to twisting or pulling without fracture, dislocation and contusion of the skin. The clinical manifestations are swelling, pain and dysfunction of the joints. This problem pertains to the conception of impairment of tendons in TCM due to improper exertion or falling and contusion that impair the vessels and meridians and result in stagnation of qi and blood.

Syndrome Differentiation
The main manifestations are swelling, pain, dysfunction of the joints and cyanotic color of local skin. If there are signs of protrusive swelling and unsmooth movement of the joints, the sprain is severe.
