    류수민 | Mi-Yeon Song | Chung, Seok Hee | 2006, 16(4) | pp.1~14 | number of Cited : 2
    Objectives : This research have been in order to study the effect of VLCD with herbal diet medication, Chegamuiyiin-tang (Tǐjiǎnyìyǐrén-tāng), on body composition, body size, and bone mineral density (BMD). Methods : This clinical retrospective research carried out in 127 cases of obese female outpatients with 1 month treatment. Bioelectrical impedence analysis (for body composition), body size and Z-score (for BMD) were estimated in pre-treatment and post-treatment to evaluate the effects of VLCD with Chegamuiyiin-tang (Tǐjiǎnyìyǐrén-tāng). Results : 1)After 1 month treatment, the weight (8.78±1.79%), fat free mass (2.78±2.59%), body fat mass (18.78±5.04%), and percent body fat (10.99±4.84%) were decreased. 2)The skeletal muscle mass was decreased. But, the percent body skeletal muscle and the Z-score for BMD was increased despite of weight reduction. 3)In the changes of body size, the waist circumference was the biggest and calf circumference was the smallest. Conclusions : These results suggest that the effects of VLCD with Chegamuiyiin-tang (Tǐjiǎnyìyǐrén-tāng) were to decrease weight mainly with not fat free mass but body fat mass. Key words : VLCD, Chegamuiyiin-tang (Tǐjiǎnyìyǐrén-tāng), Obesity, Body composition

    The Safety of Cervical Chuna Manipulation; Mechanism, Adverse Reactions and Cases Report

    고연석 | Park Tae Yong | SONG YUNG SUN and 3other persons | 2006, 16(4) | pp.83~95 | number of Cited : 5
    Objectives : The aim of the present study was to report the safety of cervical Chuna manipulation treatment (CCMT). We investigated the mechanism and complications of adverse reactions associated with CCMT, and newly demonstrated three cases in litigation. Methods : We searched relevant case reports, surveys, and review articles using a comprehensive databases of online and bibliography, combed adverse cases in clinical field. Results : A relative-to-absolute contraindication to cervical Chuna manipulation was circulatory and haematological disorders, neurological disorders, bone-weakening and destructive disorders, articular derangement or psychological factors. The majority of adverse reactions were mild or moderate in 85~90%, began within 4 h and generally disappeared within the next 24 h, at least one of them was reported by 30.0~60.9% of the patients after cervical manipulation. The most common were local discomfort (15.2~53.0%), headache (10.0~19.8%), stiffness (19.5~25.0%), tiredness (10.0~12.1%), or radiating discomfort (10.0~23.0%). The two of reported clinical cases were the occurrence of retropharngeal hematoma and cervical herniated disc disease after CCMT. The one was not a fault of practitioner, but complain for compensation. Conclusions : Manipulation of the cervical spine may also be associated with higher complication rates than previously reported. Although It is difficult to estimate the incidence of cervical manipulation complications, it is important to differentiate those patients who are susceptible to adverse reactions in order to inform them correctly.

    최승범 | SONG YUN KYUNG | Lim Hyung Ho and 3other persons | 2006, 16(4) | pp.97~113 | number of Cited : 5
    Objectives : The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy of Chuna manual therapy for patients with chronic stroke. Methods : Chuna manual therapy at lumbar․thoracic․cervical vertebra, shoulder girdle and pelvic girdle was applied to seven stroke-originated hemiplegic patients who had been treated by general oriental medicine rehabilitation therapy(sample group). The other nine stroke-originated hemiplegic patients had only general oriental medicine rehabilitation therapy(control group). Outcomes were assessed by Modified Barthel Index(MBI), Berg Balance Scale(BBS) and Modified Motor Assessment Scale(MMAS)(Upper arm function, Hand movement, Advanced hand activities) at the point of admission and discharge. Results : Both sample and control group exhibited substantial improvements on the MBI and BBS. And MBI, BBS and Upper arm function of MMAS showed significantly meaningful differences between sample and control group. Conclusions : Chuna manual therapy may be efficacious method of improving activity of daily living(ADL), leg function ․ balance, and arm function of patients after stroke.

    Kang Ji Hoon | 이길준 | Keum Dong-ho and 1other persons | 2006, 16(4) | pp.115~123 | number of Cited : 1
    Objectives : We investigated the possibility of cervical spine misalignment caused by Scalenus anticus syndrome to find out the Scalenus anticus syndrome could effect misalignment of cervical spine. Methods : 18 patients with Scalenus anticus syndrome who attended Dept. of Oriental Rehabilitation Medicine, College of Oriental Medicine, Dong-guk University from 20th June to 10th September 2006, were involved in the investigation. After researching misalignment through neutrality lateral, flexion lateral, extension lateral x-ray examination views, we measured difference of length of cervical spine misalignment. We analyzed the difference of length of cervical spine misalignment, and the relationship among the neutrality lateral, flexion lateral and extension lateral position. Results : Lateral flexion and lateral extension position were shown higher frequency than neutrality position in cervical spine misalignment. We got the statistical significance in the difference of length of cervical spine misalignment by position changes, it showed that C3, C4 vertebra bodies in lateral neutrality position, C2, C3, C4, C5 vertebra bodies in flexion lateral position, C3-5 vertebra bodies in extension lateral position. Conclusions : It was considered that scalenus anticus syndrome could increase cervical spine misalignment which could be a factor of making in cervical spine disease.

    Correlation between Horizontal Visual Analogue Scale, Vertical Visual Analogue Scale and Numerical Rating Scale for Pain Measurement

    하인혁 | 박원상 | 우인 and 3other persons | 2006, 16(4) | pp.125~133 | number of Cited : 30
    Objective : We investigated which measurement is more useful and reliable between NRS, horizontal VAS, and vertical VAS in 110 hospitalized patients who complain LBP and low extremity pain. Also, we analyzed interrelation in each measurement. Methods : Before we began investigation, we informed the objective and method of this investigation to patients. Then we checked patient's pain degree by using those three measurements(NRS, horizontal VAS, and vertical VAS). We evaluated that sensitivity, correlation and inter-individual variability of each measurement depended on analyzing values. Results : We included 108 patients because we excluded 8 patients who could not check VAS degree. Both of horizontal VAS and vertical VAS showed statically significant and high sensitivity appearing normal distribution shape. But NRS didn't show normal distribution shape. The mean value of horizontal VAS and NRS was significantly higher than NRS. There was no sharp difference clinically between horizontal VAS and NRS in inter-individual variability. The interrelation of each measurement were very close. Conclusions : There was significant difference between horizontal VAS, vertical VAS and NRS in statistics , not in clinical aspect. However, We can use those measurements usefully in pain evaluation because their interrelation is very close.

    Objectives : The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of fasting therapy on autonomic nervous system. Methods : 12 selected patients took an examination on Heart Rate Variability in the morning of admission 1st day. And they experienced 8-day fasting therapy. In the morning of discharge day, examiner rechecked same parameters of HRV as ones which were examined on 1st day. Finally, two statistic data were compared by Wilcoxon signed rank test. Results : SDNN, TP, and VLF showed significantly meaningful increase between before and after fasting therapy. Conclusions : HRV results indicate that fasting therapy has effectiveness in enhancing the function to balance autonomic nervous system.

    Objectives : The purpose of this study was to investigate manual therapy on the Complex restrictive ventilatory defect with neck pain. Methods : We used to take acupuncture, Gumsuyukun-geon(Jinshuiliujunjian) and Chuna manipulation Results & Conclusions : After treatment, he felt his symptoms cough, sputum, dyspnea, dizziness, general weakness, flushing sign improved. No changes were noted in VC, FVC but significant increase was noted in FEV1.0. Increased FEV1.0 and realigned posture show that respiratory muscle was recoverd. We may consider manual therapy to treat complex pulmonary disease on decreased expiratory function.
