With proper acupuncture treatment many stroke survivors are able to regain significant degrees of function to affected limbs and other systems including speech, swallowing and memory; and find joy and purpose in life again.
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and affects almost 800,000 people annually. While modern advances in prevention and emergency medicine have made impressive results in survival rates, the effects of a stroke can significantly affect the quality of life for survivors.
Many stroke survivors experience limb weakness or paralysis, speech disorders, swallowing problems, memory loss and difficulty walking or performing daily activities. Conventional therapies in the US to help stroke survivors recover include Physical therapy, Speech therapy and Occupational therapy; but many patients find they are not able to return to full or even partial function with these choices.
Chinese Hospitals have made major advances in the last 50 years in the treatment of stroke rehabilitation via the use of acupuncture and herbal medicine as complements to these other treatment modalities. With proper acupuncture treatment many stroke survivors are able to regain significant degrees of function to affected limbs and other systems including speech, swallowing and memory; and find joy and purpose in life again.
These acupuncture techniques are also very effective when applied to other neurological conditions such as Concussion/Traumatic Brain Injury; Migraine headache; Bell’s Palsy; Spinal cord injury and many other conditions.
