Zheng Gu Shui (Chinese: ‘bone-setting liquid’) is a traditional Chinese liniment. This external analgesic is known to relieve qi and blood stagnation, promote healing, and soothe pain.
The liniment was used to treat fractures, broken bones and injuries suffered in combat. It is used today by practitioners of Chinese medicine to treat pain or trauma from backache, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains.
Zheng Gu Shui is also used by people who suffer from achy feet from long-time standing or people who suffer from Plantar Fasciitis by applying with a cotton ball and letting air dry before putting on socks and shoes. Due to its nature, it can stain clothing if not dried properly. Stains generally can be removed with a small amount of alcohol.
