A Survey on Usage of Alternative and Complementary Therapy in Youth People
Yeo-Jin Kwon, Young-Joo Ham
Recently, there has been active research on alternative and complementary therapy and increased interest in alternative and complementary therapy because of limitations of other unorthodox medical treatment. The main purpose in this research was to find out usage, treatment, effectiveness and satisfaction rate of alternative and complementary therapy in youth people. During 19 days from April 4, 2011 to April 22, 2011, researchers randomly selected workers from Youngdengpo-gu, Jung-gu, Seungdong-gu, Kwangjin-gu and Guro-gu Seoul to take a survey. The 71.4% of workers answered 'yes' when asked if they had ever tried alternative and complementary therapy, and only 28.6% answered 'no' that they did not. When asked if their pain was reduced after treatment, more than half the people answered 'yes'. Most respondents answered positively when asked about their satisfaction level on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being very satisfied. There should be more research to upgrade and develop alternative and complementary therapy. In addition, proactive advertising is needed on the facts that alternative and complementary therapy is a proven treatment on reducing side effect and also it's effectiveness. In order to maximize treatment, endless effort is needed to inform the public that medical treatment and alternative and complementary therapy can be used together to achieve the best results.
Key words: youth people, alternative and complementary therapy, complementary, medical treatment, satisfaction level
