ABSTRACT

The objective of this study was to propose a rehabilitation protocol for ankle fracture in Korean Medicine and to report its effectiveness. Four patients who had undergone ankle fracture by car accident were treated using the rehabilitation protocol in Korean Medicine. We estimated the outcome evaluating physical examination findings of the ankle joint, nu-meric rating scale, Olerud-Molander score, and walking state. After the treatment, we ob-served that ankle movement and muscular strength were improved. Moreover numeric rat-ing scale, Olerud-Molander score, and walking state of patients were improved. A re-habilitation in Korean Medicine can be effectively used for ankle fracture patients. The limi-tation of this study was the insufficient number of cases. Further studies are needed to de-sign a rehabilitation protocol in Korean Medicine. (J Korean Med Rehabil 2017;27(4): 171-184)
