Miao medicine believes that the human body ‘four big sinew-meridian＇ has the function of ‘sinew promoting circulation of qi, meridian promoting circulation of blood＇. While it also has the characteristic of ‘if the qi and blood run smoothly, then five viscera function well; if their circulations are obstructed, then the five viscera function abnormal; if the qi and blood are extinction, then the five viscera are died＇. ‘Four big sinew-meridian＇ is the main connection between the trunk and limbs, and it is also the transmission system of human biological information and material, which plays a special role in the occurrence and treatment of disease, by giving a certain stimulation to the sinew-meridian and stimulating the Hui Qi and Ling Dong Neng of human body to play the role of prevention and treatment of disease. The incidence of chronic neck pain is increasing year by year with the development of information society and the changes of living habits and working styles, and its trend is younger. Chronic neck pain in Miao medicine belongs to ‘bone pain disease＇, ‘cold wind bone＇, ‘cold muscle wind＇ category etc. Miao medicine believes that ‘no poison, no disease, and no disorder, no disease＇. It is emphasized that both internal and external pathogens can injure the sinew-meridian, making the qi and blood run un-smoothly, then causing disease. In terms of treatment, Miao medicine advocates removing toxin, promoting the circulation of qi and moving blood.
