treatment - Stroke
Acupuncture therapy for stroke-caused conditions such as paralysis, speech and swallowing problems, and depression is commonly used.
Many studies involving thousands of patients have been published in China and Japan, and 2 of 3 studies from Scandinavia, demonstrated significant help. These studies indicate that patients get well faster, perform better in self-care, require less nursing and rehabilitation therapy, and use less healthcare dollars.
Acupuncture is a safe therapy, and the positive feedback we get has taught that this is especially true when helping stroke victims. Even discomfort is generally minimal. Give it a try!
