Acupressure points for relief of muscular Strain

Apply deep, probing pressure with fingertip, knuckle or soft-pointed object, such as a pencil eraser.

Acupoint 4: Bl60

In the depression just behind the outer anklebone

TCM: Bladder 60

Strains - over stretching or tearing of a muscle or tendon - can be quite painful, but are better than sprains (which instead affect ligaments) or broken bones. Be sure to check with a qualified health care professional to ensure all you have is a strain. Meanwhile, try this acupressure point to relieve pain while waiting for care. In addition to this one, you may want to also try acupressure points for the specific body area or part where the pain is. There are points you can try for the ankle, the knee the leg, the lower back and upper back, as well as the hip, arm, elbow and wrist. It is also reccommended that you rest the affected body part. Alternating heating and cooling can also help, as can compression, elevation, and gentle exercise when not overly painful.

If you have not found relief, try the same points on the opposite side of the body, or go back and try a related or similar symptom or body area. If you have not used acupressure before, please see the Instructions, then click the "Body Area" or "A-Z" tab and repeat.
