Abstract

The objective of this study is to report the improved case of Achilles tendinitis treated with Korean medicine, Gyeon-mak chuna and Graston Technique. The patient diagnosed with Achilles tendinitis is hospitalized at Department of Korean Rehabilitation Medicine, Samse Hospital of Korean Medicine. The subject is treated by herbal medicine, acupuncture, Gyeon-mak chuna and Graston technique. This study was measured by Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) score, walking time without pain per 6 minutes (6MWT) and American orthopaedic foot and ankle society Hind foot scale (AOFAS). The patient showed decreased VAS, AOFAS and improved 6MWT after treated with Korean medicine, Gyeon-mak chuna and Graston Technique. The patient showed reduced pain and positive effect on activities of daily living.
