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)
