ABSTRACT

Objectives :The aim of this study was to investigate the different of yangdorak diagnosis between low back pain patients and medical checkup group. Methods :We analyzed the measurement value of yangdorak on 103 patients with low back pain and 103 medical checkup persons in Korean males from March 1st, 2007 to September 30th, 2008 by using yangdorak(MEDIRA, Neomyth Co., Korea). Results :1. In comparing results on the yangdorak general mean, low back pain group is statistically significant in comparison with medical checkup group(p<0.001). 2. In comparing results on each meridian yangdorak value, they were statistically significant between two groups(p<0.001). 3. In comparing result on the distance of yangdorak value from the mean, they were statistically significant between two groups at the Bladder- meridian(p<0.05), but not at the Kidney-meridian. Conclusions :This results suggest that yangdorak may be used for a method to objective clinical examination. But further studies are required for a use of practical indicator.
