Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 13993 posts. Searching is done in the search box in upper left corner. I blog on anything to do with stroke.DO NOT DO ANYTHING SUGGESTED HERE AS I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED, YOUR DOCTOR IS, LISTEN TO THEM. BUT I BET THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET YOU 100% RECOVERED. I DON'T EITHER, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTOR TO ANSWER.
Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.
What this blog is for:
Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group. My back ground story is here:http://oc1dean.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-background-story_8.html

Community promotion of superficial needling plus club swing for post-stroke motion impairment of the shoulder joint
With two variables you can't know which one to attribute recovery to. And since this doesn't mention timeframe it could just be spontaneous recovery. These were all high functioning survivors already. I don't see how acupuncture can have any effects except placebo or
spontaneous recovery since energy meridians have never been proven to

investigate the community promotion feasibility of superficial needling
plus club swing for post-stroke motion impairment of the shoulder
total of 180 cases (duration <1.5 years) with post-stroke motion
impairment of the shoulder joint were recruited from three community
health centers in Changning District, 60 from each community. They were
randomly allocated into an observation group (n=90) and a control group (n=90).
Patients in both groups received standard internal and rehabilitation
care. Patients in the observation group received additional superficial
needling plus club swing. The visual analogue scale (VAS) was conducted
before and 60 d after the treatment to evaluate the severity of shoulder
pain. The active movement of the shoulder joint and activities of daily
living (ADL) were also observed.
There were no between-group statistical differences before the treatment (all P>0.05).
After a 60-day treatment, the shoulder pain severity, active range of
motion of the shoulder joint and ADL in the observation group were
significantly improved than those in the control group (all P<0.01). In addition, no adverse events were reported by participants in the observation group.
needling plus club swing plays a positive role in improving post-stroke
motion impairment of the shoulder joint. This safe, reliable and
economical therapy has good patient compliance and is suitable for
