Diagnosing physical trauma as explained in the oral instruction tantra

[...] The conditions that result in physical traumas are strenuous activities such as running, jumping, wrestling, lifting rocks, carrying heavy loads, pulling back a tight bowstring, digging in hard ground, falling off a horse or height, getting trapped under debris, and being beaten with stones and sticks. These conditions injure the bodily constituents and cause disturbance in blood, which subsequently aggravates the hot-nature tripa."
