Commonly Treated Ailments

I have created a list here of the more commonly treated ailments that I regularly see in the clinic.

(Note: this is by no means a comprehensive list)

I have broken the list up into two, the first list will be the Yang Disorders, that is the more external ones, that means that they are based primarily in the outer, musclar skeletal network. The second list will be known as the Yin Disorders list and it will revolve aound more internally based ailments meaning that they revolve around the way the internal organs are functioning.

Often people can have troubles with something from both lists but don't fret, they are often related, once you understand how the ki energy circulates through the body it becomes easier to understand the inter-relationships.

Yang External Disorders

  • Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Knee pain
  • Hips
  • Shoulders (frozen)
  • Tennis and Golfers Elbow

Yin Internal Disorders

  • Digestion and indigestion
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Cardiac issues
  • Respiratory troubles
