The request for this word was: "tackle: seize and knock to the ground"  [note]

More Information

For "tackle," combine with pummoH "cause to fall (down)"; (qep'a' 2020)

vov is primarily used only physical, so not for "wrestle with a problem"; of course one can use almost any word metaphorically, but it depends on context and cannot be generally answered. The object of the verb (the "aggrappalee") is the person being grappled. Okrand was not sure if you can vov a person's arm. (qep'a' 2020 Q&A 11:28)
