Chinese traumatology is similar to integrated medicine made up of Western medicine orthopedics, rehabilitation, and pain management. Any muscle, joint, and nerve pain can be treated by Chinese traumatology, without being limited to external injury. Chinese traumatology works well in the treatment of fracture, soft tissue injury (sprains, contusions, and traumatic injuries) and osteoarticular diseases (lumbago and knee joint degeneration).
The first thing to do for trauma therapy is to have correct diagnosis. Osteopathy and spinal manipulation are performed to adjust the joint dislocation of the lesion site by identifying the location and cause of the lesion, so that the therapeutic effect can be produced, instead of just administering local therapy.
The hospital's Division of Trauma in TCM also utilizes osteopathy and spinal manipulation to adjust the minor dislocation of the human spine or joint to treat all kinds of pain. And in conjunction with various manipulation, massage, and tendon-regulation techniques on human acupoints, the division accomplishes the purpose of treatment by stimulating and enhancing the body's ability to resist disease.
In the treatment of traumas, it lays equal stress on muscles and bones and combines static and dynamic, internal and external therapies, in an effort to help wounds heal quickly, make a functional recovery, and minimize pain and complications.
