    하현주 | Minseok Oh | 2017, 27(3) | pp.33~45 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract
    ObjectivesThe objective of this study is to report the evidence that continuous passive motion (CPM) therapy combined with Korean Medicine is effective for knee injuries.MethodsWe searched 2 Korean medical electronic databases, and 2 Chinese electronic databases to find randomized controlled clinical trials (RCTs) that treat knee injuries with Korean Medicine combined with CPM therapy. We selected studies by screening. We ex-tracted data from selected RCTs, and analyzed RCTs by using Cochrane's Risk of bias criteria.Results386 studies are searched, and 7 RCTs are selected. According to the study, several kinds of Korean Medicine such as hydrotherapy, decoction, acupuncture, mox-ibustion, and manual therapy are used with CPM therapy for the knee joint postoperative rehabilitation. We found the encouraging evidence that Korean Medicine and CPM com-bined therapy is more effective than single CPM therapy by alleviating pain, increasing range of motion, and improving knee function, etc. However, the risk of bias in most RCTs was judged to be uncertain.ConclusionsCombination of Korean Medicine and CPM therapy can compensate the defect of single CPM therapy, and promotes the recovery of knee joint function.

    Gu jihyang | Eun Seok Kim | Yangchun Park and 2other persons | 2017, 27(3) | pp.47~60 | number of Cited : 11
    Abstract
    ObjectivesThe aim of this research is to assess the effects of bee venom acupuncture for knee osteoarthritis. MethodsFor a systematic review, we constructed a key question as the effect of bee venom acupuncture for knee osteoarthritis and selected RCTs and nRCTs. We searched the following 15 databases without a language restriction: Pubmed, EMBASE, Cochrane CENTRAL (CENTRAL), CINAHL, AMED, seven Korean medical databases (KoreaMed, Kmbase, KISS, NDSL, KISTI, Koreantk, OASIS) and three Chinese databases including CNKI, Wanfang and VIP database.ResultsA total of 300 potentially relevant studies were identified; only 13 studies were selected for systematic review. Almost studies showed that bee venom acupuncture has significant effect on knee osteoarthritis. 5 studies comparing bee venom acupuncture with acupuncture were included in the meta-analysis. The effect size of standardized mean dif-ference (SMD) was analyzed as 'small effect' with 0.47 (95% CI: 0.10∼0.83, Z=2.49, p=0.01).ConclusionsThe research showed that bee venom acupuncture can significantly re-duce pain, stiffness and improve the quality of life of patients with knee osteoarthritis. However, most of the studies included in the analysis were evaluated as methodologically high risk of bias. This suggests that there is limitation applying this study. In the future, more Randomized Controlled trial should be actively conducted. (J Korean Med Rehabil 2017;27(3):47-60)

    Kang-Joon Lee | 박창현 | 이윤재 and 6other persons | 2017, 27(3) | pp.61~70 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract
    ObjectivesThe purpose of this review is to analyse the trend in papers related with Korean Medicine Treatment after musculoskeletal disorder surgery.MethodsWe reviewed Korean Medicine papers by searching Korean web databases ‘Korea Traditional Knowledge Portal’, ‘Scientific and Technological Information Integration Service (NDSL)’, ‘Academic Research Information Service (RISS)’, ‘Korea Medical Informati on Portal (OASIS)’. We classified the papers by the year of publishment, the title of journals, the type of study, surgery region, chief complain after surgery, main treatment, pe-riods after surgery, assessment for outcomes.Results1. Korean Medicine treatment after musculoskeletal disorder surgery has re-ceived more attention than in the past and there are attempts to do various studies besides the case reports. 2. 41 research papers were divided in to 3 original articles, 3 review ar-ticles, 35 case reports. But almost presented a low level of evidence. 3. Pain was the most common symptom after the musculoskeletal disorder surgery. Pain should be the primary goal of Korean rehabilitation treatment after musculoskeletal disorder surgery. 4. Assessment tools for outcome were concentrated in questionnaries, VAS and NRS. In or-der to evaluate better, it is necessary to evaluate the overall condition of the patient such as the quality of life evaluation and patient satisfaction.ConclusionsIn this study, we expect that the development and clinical application of Korean rehabilitation treatment program after musculoskeletal disorder surgery will be ac-tively pursued.

    배동렬 | 조형준 | 김희나 and 1other persons | 2017, 27(3) | pp.71~79 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract
    ObjectivesTo determine the effectiveness of Tuina for temporomandibular joint disorder.MethodsWe searched 10 electronic databases (Pubmed, CNKI, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, KISS, KISTI, NDSL, RISS, KMBASE, DBpia) up to May 2017. We included random-ized controlled trials (RCTs) using Tuina for temporomandibular joint disorder. The meth-odological quality of each RCT was assessed by the Cochrane risk of bias tool.Results14 RCT studies were eligible in our review. 14 studies were divided into 4 groups, and meta-analysised. The meta-analysis of 6 studies showed favorable results for the use of Tuina. High risk of bias were observed in 9 studies.ConclusionsAlthough there are favorable results with meta-analysis, our systematic re-view are highly dependent on the single source of Chinese electrical database, CNKI. Now limited evidence is available to support Tuina for temporomandibular joint disorder and fur-ther well-designed RCTs should be encouraged. (J Korean Med Rehabil 2017; 27(3):71-79)

    서하라 | 이옥진 | 이재은 and 1other persons | 2017, 27(3) | pp.81~93 | number of Cited : 7
    Abstract
    ObjectivesThe purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of Chuna therapy for primary dysmenorrhea.MethodsResearchers searched on 7 electronic databases (Pubmed, National Digital Science Library, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Wangfang med online, Korean Studies Information Service System, Research Information Sharing Service and Oriental medicine Advanced Searching Integrated System). The search included Korean, English, Chinese reports and there was no limit on the search period. All of randomized controlled clinical trials (RCTs) that used Chuna manual therapy for primary dysmenorrhea were selected. Results27 RCTs met required condition. Meta-analysis showed positive results for Chuna manual therapy for primary dysmenorrhea in terms of therapeutic effects and reduc-tion of symptom scores compared to west medicine, herbal medicine, acupucture and oth-er treatments.ConclusionsAbove results showed that performing chuna is effective in treating dysmenorrhea. However, in some studies, there was no statistic significance between the experimental group and the control group. Also, according to Cochrane Risk of Bias (RoB) evaluation method, quality of the studies were not high enough. Since most of the materials were in Chinese, more high-quality clinical trials about Chuna therapy for primary dysme-norrhea are needed in Korea. (J Korean Med Rehabil 2017;27(3):81-93)

    김명규 | 서하라 | Hyun-Ju Ha and 6other persons | 2017, 27(3) | pp.95~105 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract
    ObjectivesTo evaluate the evidence supporting the effectiveness of Soyeom pharmaco-puncture therapy for Pain.MethodsWe conducted search across 6 electronic databases (Pubmed, CAJ, Oasis, RISS, DBPIA and KoreanTK) and 2 journals to find clinical trials that used Soyeom pharma-copuncture therapy as treatment for pain. The methodological quality of Randomized con-trolled clinical trials (RCTs) was assessed using the Cochrane Risk of Bias (RoB) tool, while NRCTs (Non-Randomized controlled clinical trials) were assessed using the Risk of Bias Assessment tool for Non-randomized Study (RoBANS) tool.ResultsAmong 75 articles that were searched, 5 RCTs and 2 NRCTs were finally selected. Among 7 selected studies, all studies showed that Soyeom pharmacopuncture therapy has significant effect on Pain.ConclusionsOur systematic review found encouraging but limited evidence of Soyeom pharmacopuncture therapy for Pain. We recommend clinical trials which compare the ef-fectiveness of Soyeom pharmacopuncture therapy with other pharmacopuncture therapies to clarify the effectiveness of Soyeom pharmacopuncture therapy from other pharmaco-puncture therapies.

    Gi-Eon Lee | Suk-Won Huh | 이현호 and 5other persons | 2017, 27(3) | pp.137~146 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract
    ObjectivesThe purpose of this study is to compare the effects between the KL-Grade and improvement of knee pain treated by Korean Medicine therapy.Methods114 patients who received inpatient treatment from July 2014 to May 2017 in the Daejeon Jaseng of Korean Medicine Hospital were divided into 5 groups by the KL-Grade. All patients received a combination of treatment including acupunture, pharma-copunture, herbal medication. They were compared and analyzed on the basis of improve-ment between measuring Numeric Rating Scale (NRS), Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index (WOMAC Index), EuroQol-5 Dimension Index (EQ-5D Index) as they were hospitalized and as they were discharged. The statistically significance was eval-uated by SPSS 23.0 for windows.ResultsAfter treatment, KL-Grade 0 group’s Numeric Rating Scale (NRS), Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index (WOMAC Index), EuroQol-5 Dimension Index (EQ-5D Index) improvement was 2.02±1.69, 7.50±9.67 and 0.11±0.15 respec-tively. KL-Grade 1 group’s improvement was 2.09±1.23, 11.75±13.99 and 0.12±0.13respectively. KL-Grade 2 group’s improvement was 1.60±1.07 and 14.70±14.19 respec-tively. But In this group, EQ-5D Index has decreased by 0.01±0.10. KL-Grade 3 group’s improvement was 1.88±1.31, 7.81±13.35 and 0.13±0.20 respectively (p<0.034). In the case of KL-Grade 4, the population was not statistically significant (N=2) and therefore ex-cluded from statistical significance. And there was no statistically significance between 4 group’s improvement after treatment (p>0.05).ConclusionsThe above study showed that Korean medicine treatments showed sig-nificant therapeutic effects on knee pain and degenerative knee joints, but there was no sig-nificant difference in the effectiveness of degenerative arthritis (KL-Grade).
