Though with the development of modern disease diagnosis and rescue techniques, the mortality rate of stroke has been effectively controlled, about 80% of the surviving patients have different degrees of limb dysfunction. As one of the most important non-drug therapy, acupuncture could prevent muscle atrophy, improve the relaxed muscle tension and improve the motor functions. This article lists the treatment of different acupuncture methods combined with modern rehabilitation, providing clinical guidance for the involvement of acupuncture treatment in the comprehensive treatment of post-stroke flaccid paralysis.

Abstract

Stroke has been in a high incidence, and stroke sequelae have become the main cause of motor dysfunction. The treatment of flaccid paralysis is critical to stroke recovery. In recent years, traditional treatment, especially acupuncture therapy has achieved certain effects for the treatment of post-stroke flaccid paralysis. Acupuncture treatment can promote the recovery of nerve conduction, increase muscle strength and improve joint flexibility, and correct abnormal movement patterns of limbs. Acupuncture combined with rehabilitation training will be the focus for the treatment of post-stroke flaccid paralysis. In this review, the combination of different acupuncture therapies with modern rehabilitation for the treatment of post-stroke flaccid paralysis has been summarized in order to effectively promote the recovery of motor function and significantly improve their life quality.
