In addition to its therapeutic functions, La-jin can also help in diagnosis. Bodily illness can be diagnosed from La-jin posture and treated in the course of the La-jin practice. Take the following examples: 

1. If the raised knees have pain and are not able to straighten, these are  symptoms of Jin Suo , which indicates a blockage in the Liver Meridian ( the channel related to liver), because liver governs the Jin. A blockage in the Liver Meridian will certainly affect the stomach and the spleen. In Traditional Chinese Medicine elements category ; The liver belongs to the wood element, while the spleen belongs to the earth element. And wood influences earth. 

2. If there is pain in the hip and the back of the knees, it shows that the passage of the Bladder Meridian is blocked, and the kidney has problems. 

This is because the bladder and the kidney are closely connected, both belonging to the water element; neither one can be healthy if the other one is not healthy. Diseases caused by the blockage of the Bladder Meridian include edema, obesity, frequent micturition, diabetes, and so on. 

3. During La-jin in reclining position, if raised hands and arms cannot reach the surface of the bench. It is related with such diseases such as frozen shoulder, heart, lung, head, five sense organs, galactophone. 

4. Raised leg cannot stretch straight and lowered legs hangs in the air without touching the ground , which suggests that Jin Suo is serious, and the liver, spleen, kidney channels are not smooth, and there will be the ache in the waist and back or even troubles with abdominal organs. Women with these symptoms are likely to have gynecopathy whereas men with these probably have troubles with their prostate.  

Will La-jin cause damage to Jin or muscles?

 1. La-jin is a natural rational exercise. Pain, numbness, ache, swollen pain and others imply that Qi (chi) and blood cannot flow smoothly, so it requires La-jin practice to make it smooth. 

2. La-jin is s self-controlled exercise with appropriate intensity and time. You can control it so as not to hurt yourself with over-stretching.

3. You feel painful while practice La-jin, which will suggest that something is wrong with your body. You will bring your body under a tolerable control by flexibly manipulating intensity and time.

4. Beginners, patients with severe diseases, aged people cannot stretch too much. They had better lengthen their time of La-jin practice gradually and increase their strength bit by bit.

5. Someone said that his Jin was hard from his childhood. In fact, hard Jin sounds an alarm for bodily troubles, which suggests that something is wrong with liver because liver controls the muscles.  Therefore, he should practise La-jin

6. No matter how much time or what form you use in La-jin, if you don't feel painful, numb and swollen, which suggests that your bones are in the right place and your Jins are smooth, thus Qi (chi) and blood flow naturally.
