Literal meaningfall, hit

Die-da (Chinese: 跌打; pinyin: Diē dá; Jyutping: tit3 daa2; literally: 'fall, hit') or Dit Da, is a traditional Chinese bone-setting and osteopathy, that apply to the treatment of trauma and injuries such as bone fractures, sprains, and bruises.

Background[edit]

The medical practice was first originated from Guangdong, China and was usually practiced by martial artists who knew aspects of Traditional Chinese medicine.

Some of these specialists may also use or recommend other disciplines of Chinese medical therapies, and in modern times, the use of Western medicine, if serious injury is involved. Such practice of bone-setting (整骨 or 正骨) is not common in the West.[1]

Dit Da is currently practiced in Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Southeast Asia.[2]
