  • Objectives: To evaluate the evidence supporting the effectiveness of Chuna manual therapy for rheumatoid arthritis. Methods: We conducted a search across 9 electronic databases to find all randomized controlled clinical trials (RCTs) that used Chuna manual therapy as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. The methodological quality of each RCT was assessed using the Cochrane risk of bias tool. Results: Our inclusion criteria were met by 5 RCTs. The meta-analysis showed positive results for the use of Chuna manual therapy combined with oriental usual care (UC) in terms of the efficacy rate, pain, and duration of morning stiffness when compared to western UC. Positive results were also obtained in terms of the efficacy rate, when Chuna manual therapy combined with medication was compared to medication treatments alone. Conclusions: Our systematic review found encouraging, but limited evidence of Chuna manual therapy for rheumatoid arthritis. However, to obtain stronger evidence without the drawbacks of trial design and the quality of studies, we recommend a comparative research to test the effectiveness of Chuna manual therapy.

  • Objectives : It is important to develop a new Chuna manual therapy as a representative of Chuna manual therapy technique at the time of KSCMM's (Korean Society of Chuna manual medicine) joining a $F{\acute{e}}d{\acute{e}}ration$ Internationale de $M{\acute{e}}decine$ Manuelle (FIMM). Therefore, Sunu manual therapy (SMT) will be introduced as a purely new Chuna manual therapy. Main subject : Sunu manual therapy (SMT) was discovered about two decade ago by a Korean Medicine doctor who wanted to develop a new manual therapy to treat a internal disease. It is very important to make the best use of four powers such as a compression force, a torsion force, a bending force, a tension force using a resonance principle and to experience a feeling of spine axis. SMT is different from Chiropractic technique and Osteopathy technique, in that SMT could treat so many disease using only one technique, but other manual therapy could utilize so many technique to treat only one disease. Discussion : Because SMT utilize a power of a moving in silience, it will take several years to totally master a SMT which will make a patient and a doctor experience a feeling of spine axis. As a feeling of spine axis is deeper, a nerve could be excited and treated by a SMT. Also as a feeling of spine axis is shallower, a muscle could be excied and treated by a SMT. Conclusions : SMT could be classed as a craniosacral chuna therapy or visceral chuna therapy to treat a internal disease considering SMT's action and purpose.
