We have researched some oriental books and articles about ankle sprains, Kyung Keun, acupuncture and five su point. And we investigated the meaning between the sea point and Yin Gi in acupuncture of an ankle sprain.

Results & Conclusions:

In other to Yin Gi, using the sea point in an ankle sprain, there are two meanings.
