Traditional Chinese Medical Bone setting
TCM bone setting helps alleviate such things as fractures and breaks through techniques such as draw-and-pull and using splints. It is an important part of traditional Chinese medicine, and has 3,000 years of history. As early as in the Zhou Dynasty (1100BC-221BC), doctors were already practicing orthopedics and their methods have been passed down through generations.
The method of setting bones with small splints originated in China and has been imitated in many countries around the world. This is China"s contribution to world medicine.
However, due to economics, many hospitals have stopped using these methods, and as a result they are in danger of being forgotten and need to be protected.
