The imperial physician of the Qing Dynasty, Huangdi Neijing and Yinjing, published Four Holy Heart Sources, and put forward the theory of "Earth, Four Elephants, One Circulation of Qi", that is, "Water, Fire, Metal and Wood Four Elephant Ascending and Descending of Yin and Yang, all around the earth, such as no reason. Combined with the theory of "Treating Impotence by Taking Yangming Alone" in "Internal Classic", the author thinks that it has certain guiding significance for the clinical rehabilitation of muscle strength decline of patients after knee joint operation. All types of postoperative patients with muscle strength decline due to limited Qi and blood metaplasia, and therefore poor muscle nutrition. [1] Through retrieving the relevant literature in recent years, this paper discusses the feasibility of the recovery of muscle strength by focusing on the treatment of spleen, stomach and kidney.
