(looking embaressed) What exactly is bone setting? Also I had an idea for an addition to KunFuOnline. I believe there is a section with terminology on this site but I find it lacks most of the words I look up. Like that word that begins with a W that conditions your knuckles to give you a flat hitting surface or many other words I have tried looking up. Thanks, low_sweep

Pretty much what it implies. There is an area of Traditional Chinese Medicine that deals with the setting of broken bones in such a way that they heal quickly and correctly.

It involves not only the correct alignment of the bones so they mend correctly but also the use of massage and herbs (taken internally and applied externally) to speed up the healing process.

It is a very deep area of study pretty much overlooked in the west due to the preference for casts and such....

GLW, man I could use some of that. I break at least a bone a year. Anyone here in the Lone Star State with any expertise?
