Medicine and martial arts have been linked together in Asia for countless generations. At some point in their training most martial artists, and for that matter athletes or anyone involved in sports, will have to deal with physical injury. In old China, modern hospitals were not around every corner. Thus martial artists and especially martial arts teachers, developed strategies and treatments to prevent and treat injury. Many martial arts teachers traditionally also made their living as doctors specializing in treating injury or pain.
