Acupuncture in Stroke Rehabilitation
Electro-acupuncture and Strengthening Exercise for Hemiplegic Elbow and Wrist Joints

The primary purpose of the study is to examine the effect of acupuncture treatment when combined with strength training on the motor functional recovery of stroke survivors

In this study, we compare the effect on motor functional improvement between a combined acupuncture and strength training program and the strength training alone. The results may allow us to determine whether the acupuncture may bring in additional benefit to the motor recovery in the upper limb in stroke survivors
