Assisting strength and repair for healthy movement
Our muscles, tendons and ligaments work together not only allowing us to perform movement but also to provide stability to our skeleton. A healthy active lifestyle is important to keep these structural tissues strong, nevertheless they are working hard everyday and can be prone to injury at any age. Injuries to any of these tissues can be debilitating causing a wide range of symptoms such as stiffness, swelling, aching, burning, pain, weakness and inflammation. There are many stretching and strengthening exercises that can help to support your muscles, tendons and ligaments in addition to certain herbs and nutrients. At Fusion® Health we have developed a wide range of formulas to provide nourishing protection and support to these areas, as well as assisting with symptom relief, promoting healing, recovery and ongoing support for all muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Here’s what Chinese medicine has to say about Muscles, Tendons and Ligaments
- The Liver controls the tendons and ligaments.
- When the Liver has ample Blood and body fluids, the tendons and ligaments are strong and allow full range flexion and extension. If the Liver Blood is deficient, the tendons and ligaments will lack adequate moistening and nourishment, this may result in contractions, spasms, limitation of movement or lack of strength.
- An accumulation of Wind-damp in the joints is associated with pain and swelling.
- Kidney ‘energy’ deficiency may cause problems with water regulation and may lead to pain in the joints.
