ABSTRACT

Objectives :The aim of this study is to investigate into the origin, transmission and transformation of traditional therapy called JieGu(接骨) in Korea and to present the status of JieGuShi(接骨士) in Korea in contrast to Japan and China. Methods :We searched medical or non-medical classics of Joseon dynasty with the key word “JieGu(接骨)” and found various therapies for bone fracture and dislocation. And we analysed JieGuShi exam books in Japanese imperialistic period, and made interview with Korean JieGuShi remained. Results :We found considerable linkage of clinical technique for bone fracture and dislocation which is using drugs, surgery and hand techniques in spite of centennial time gap. But the JieGuShi system is about to disappear because of institutional change in medicine and the techniques they had also distributed quite a lot without formal successors. In contrast, Japan’s JieGuShi who succeeded to merge the traditional technique and modern medicine in musculoskeletal field are now much flurishing. Conclusions :The linkage of traditional JieGu technique and succeeding modern clinics in Korea is evident. The imminent task is registering the original practices of JieGuShi which is to be selected and arranged to revitalize the skills of hand therapies in the musculoskeletal field.
