Acupuncture for Stroke Recovery:

Many studies have shown acupuncture to be one of the most powerful therapies for recovery from stroke www.medicalacupuncture.org/acu_info/articles/stroketreatment.html . Motor as well as sensory function can be improved using a specialized type of acupuncture done on the scalp. Studies have also concluded www.medicalacupuncture.org/aama_marf/journal/vol14_3/article3.html that disphagia or difficulty in swallowing that is often a symptom of stroke can be improved with acupuncture treatment. In our practice we usually incorporate body and ear needling as well as scalp needling to achieve optimal results. Scalp acupuncture is a different type of acupuncture that is not practiced by every acupuncturist, but one that we are well trained and experienced in (we use scalp acupuncuture for a wide variety of conditions). We have seen marked improvement in many of our stroke patients. It is preferable, but not absolutely necessary, that the treatments begin as soon as possible after the acute phase of the stroke in order to achieve maximum benefit. But benefits can be seen even when starting several months or longer after the stroke. We will often travel to hospitals or homes of stroke patients who cannot easily come to us. We have offices in Midlothian as well as Mechanicsville Virginia. Acupuncture is a very safe and effective form of treatment for stroke patients which has been shown to improve function as well as overall health and strength.
