Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the elderly. While modern Western medicine is capable of providing effective first aid treatment for sufferers of cerebral vascular accidents, it has little to offer stroke victims in terms of long-term recuperative treatment. However, research in China has proven that acupuncture and its related modalities can effectively treat the many sequelae of stroke. In this book, you will not only learn a host of classical and contemporary acupuncture treatments for stroke, but you will also learn specific, clinically proven acupuncture protocols for 23 commonly seen post-stroke conditions. These include:

  • Depression
  • Visual disturbances
  • Dysphagia
  • Asphasia
  • Ataxia
  • Muscular atrophy
  • Muscular tension
  • Insomnia
  • Hypertension
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Constipation
  • And more…

Each of these protocols is accompanied by outcome studies showing exactly how well they work. In addition, this book includes the latest Chinese diagnostic and outcome criteria for stroke as well as an extensive section on the most up to date guidelines for prevention of stroke. Not only will this book help you treat stroke patients more knowledgeably and effectively, it can also be used to help convince Western MDs and their patients that acupuncture is the best addition to their post-stroke therapy.
