Pain caused from soft tissue injury is one of the three most complicated diseases in the world.  At present, doctors still have no acute and effective solution to cure it.

The invention of Finger Surgery created a brand-new path of treatment.  With its outstanding curative effect and result, Finger Surgery treatment for soft tissue injury has been recognized at the medical field as a surprised breakthrough in the 21st century.

1. What is Finger Surgery?
Finger Surgery uses one or two thumbs to treat at a specific spot of the soft tissue, which is similar to use steel knife to operate at the injured area, it also be called “External Body Operation”.

2. What are the major manipulations to compose the Finger Surgery?
Finger Surgery combined 38 types of manipulation, the most important two of them are Bo and Shun.  Properly used Bo and Shun becomes the essential part for curing soft tissue injury. With some other manipulations, makes Finger Surgery a perfect Solution for curing the soft tissue injury.

3. What is the difference among Finger Surgery, Tui Na, Massage and Acupressure?
Massage, TuiNa and Acupressure are the traditional manipulations. Generally speaking, massage and acupressure are appropriate for relaxing and taking care of health. TuiNa is appropriate for treating external, internal, women or children’s illness.  According to the latest theory, it is necessary to separate the treatment of soft tissue injury from traditional manipulations and to specialize in “Finger Surgery” treatment.

Finger Surgery focused on the pathologic change of injured soft tissue by combined using the 38 manipulations to cure the patients effectively.  Right after the organism injured, it is at the first stage of pathologic change. If appropriated manipulations were used, the swelling may quickly reduce, spasm may immediately alleviate and pain may disappear right away.  If the manipulation did not focus on the pathologic change, it is very possible to make patient’s symptoms moved to second stage; swelling increased, the external region of spasm or scars would be swollen with severe pain, the additional treatment and recovering process will be needed.

Massage works only on the surface of the soft tissue, which is not deep enough.  Massage at the swollen part would cause injured tissue more swelling, inflammation, lymphatic fluid, tissue fluid and blood flood, even develop swelling underneath skin and caused patient’s unbearable pain. Under these circumstances, taking any medicine could not relief the pain.

“TuiNa” is not directed and specific at the injured area, could not reach precised result.  The area of TuiNa is wide; if patient injured a small area, it is very possible to injure the surrounding soft tissue with Tui Na and gets no directed curative effect at the injured spot. Generally speaking, after many years of TuiNa, soft tissues become loose, once it injured, inflammation will follow the fascia and spread over from one point to a whole piece.

Acupressure at swelling spot is appropriate, which often used at spasm and stiffed soft tissue areas.  However slight press can not obtain a curative effect, people usually pressed at the spasm spot very hard in order to relax the muscle and continuously pressed the soft tissue for hours until patient could not bear the pain.  People do not realize that fiber would be adhered and become more stiffness after prolonged pressure, it would take much more treatments to recover.  Pressing at the far point, the local injured area can not get completely treatment, which will cause scars and difficulty for a future treatment.

Finger Surgery follows the fiber movement to operate at the swelling or painful spot.  Use the “Shun” manipulation as the first cut, patient may feel slight pain, pain will be immediately reduced after the second cut; pain and swelling will be relieved after the third cut.  The spasm and scar of the soft tissue will be relaxed very fast.

4. Characteristic of Finger Surgery
The healing period is short with very good curative effective, no sequela and scars.

5. The source of Finger Surgery treatment
Ancient King’s NeiJing<<LingQu. JingJin>>, Basis on the theory: “painful area is the injured area”, which means treatment the local injured area is the principal for soft tissue injury.  Soft tissue related diseases include numbness, muscle spasm, severe muscle strained/sprained, muscle/ligament twisted or shrinking, etc.


6. Pathologic changes in soft tissue injury:
Acute or Semi-acute stage: bruise, inflammation, swelling or muscle spasm.
Chronic stage: soft tissue starts to be stiffness, fibrosis, scars adhesive formed.

7. Examination soft tissue injury:
The degree of swelling, swelling on the surface and stiffness underneath, tight, fiber, scar, knots, muscle spasm, numbness, function, the range of motion, etc.

8. Pathologic stages of Finger Surgery
Acute stage, semi-acute stage, chronic stage, chronic stage of acute attack, chronic stage of semi-acute attack, function recovering stage, recovery stage.

9. The Basic principle of Finger Surgery
Based on the different anatomy structure of the local injured areas to provide various techniques and will not damage the normal soft tissue.  For example, after muscle injured, the doctor needs to make accurate diagnosis to find out that it is swelling or muscle spasm, it is at the fascia or the muscle fiber; after ligament injured, the doctor needs to find out that it is swelling on surface and stiffness in the deep inside tissue or it is muscle spasm with scars; the tendinous sheath injured is acute, semi-acute, or chronic.  With the various techniques combined used, the doctor needs to pay special attention on the strength of manipulation.

10. Symptoms apply:
Specialize in orthopedic soft tissue injury. To the diseases of the department of  internal/external, gynecology, pediatrics, five sense organs, and dermatology are all have amazed effects

11. Function
Relieve inflammation, swelling and pain; relax muscle and ligament, decomposition adhesive scars of the soft tissue.

12. Principles of treatment
(1) Acute stage: The strength of manipulation should from light to hard, stop treatment as soon as swelling relieved.
(2) Chronic stage: The strength of manipulation should be light or slightly harder, it should not be very hard.  When “Bo” is used, the light manipulation is for examination, the slightly harder manipulation is for treatment. The excessive strength was used may cause painful and exudation of inflammation. 
(3) Chronic stage of acute and semi-acute attack: The treatment should be separated into two steps.  First, use light strength of manipulation to reduce   swelling at the external area, then use medium strength of manipulation to relax the stiffness of deep inside soft tissue.  The semi-acute attack of chronic stage can do the treatment for the swelling and stiffness the same time.

13. Therapeutic manipulation techniques:
Finger Surgery works as doing an operation at external area of the body, it requires various manipulation techniques.  This paper listed 38 techniques, which include Bo and Shun method, Bo includes 10 different techniques, Shun includes 28 techniques, which were divided as JingShun (body still) and DongShun (body movement).  Bo follows tendon fiber working at vertical direction, Shun works at the direction of tendon fiber.

One could combine using the techniques based on the symptoms.  It is important to remember the 50 “four-words colloquialisms” in order to apply the techniques properly.

14. Attention
After each treatment, the herbal pack should be applied at the affected area.  For acute stage, use the herbal bag for about 20-30 minutes for every half an hour until the swelling and inflammation part are relieved.  For Chronic stage, use the herbal bag 15-20 minutes each time for 3-5 times a day.

15. Prohibition
Heat/ice, massage/TuiNa, medicated patch, cupping, scarping, lifting/carrying heavy stuffs were prohibited when receiving the “Finger Surgery” treatment.

Overall, Finger Surgery created the amazed therapeutic effect since it has been invented for the past 20 years.  It has received highly evaluations from the patients.  Finger surgery has fulfilled the empty spot in medical field for the best therapeutic way in treating the soft tissue injury.  We expect it would bring an extraordinary contribution to human beings in the near future.
