What You Need to Know About Physical Medicine
East-West Medicine includes forms of Physical Medicine with a Functional Medicine Approach that are empirical evidenced based with over 2000 years of written clinical results. Physical Medicine can be performed with acupuncture or manually with a traditional process called Tui Na. While modern physical therapy was developed in the 20th century during WWI, Tui Na goes back thousands of years and includes the breaking of myofascial-orthopedic adhesions called Ban Fa which have been adopted by chiropractors. Used for injuries and rehabilitation for thousands of years, Tui Na and its Functional Medicine Approach is safer and more effective than other forms of physical medicine when combined with Traditional Chinese Medicine including acupuncture, herbs and nutrition, etc. Studies show it can be twice as effective as conventional physical medicine alone. Because Traditional Chinese Medicine includes Physical Medicine with a Functional Medicine Approach, it offers many unique advantages to care.
