  • Objective : The purpose of this clinical study was to investigate the effects of moxibustion on functional recovery in stroke patients. Methods : Forty two stroke patients were randomized into either the standard physiotherapy treatment combined with moxibustion group or a control group with standard physiotherapy alone. They were 8 weeks from onset to the start of this study. Moxibustion was applied at 合谷(LI14), 外關(TE5), 曲池(LI11), 太衝(LIV3), 懸鍾(絶骨,G39), 足三里(S36) in hemiplegic upper and lower extremity, once a day for 6 weeks. The effect of treatment on functional recovery was assessed using the Functional Independence Measure scale. Statistical significance was achieved if the probability was less than 5%(p<0.05). Result : These 2 groups had comparable clinical characteristics; sex, age, lesion, and pre-treatment FIM score. After 6 weeks, patients in the moxibustion group performed better on FIM. The differences were significant(P=0.001). Conclusion : These results suggest that moxibustion is an effective treatment for functional recovery in stroke patients.

  • According to previous reports, intra-articular bee venom injection is very effective for synovitis, intra-articular lesions. In this article, we report 4 cases of well-treated meniscal tear with intra-articular bee venom injection. We used intra-articular bee venom injection on meniscal tear diagnosed by MR imaging and prescribed herbal medication, physiotherapy if necessary. Outcomes were measured by Visual Analogue Scale(VAS) and Lysholm Knee Scoring Scale. Patients who are treated by intra-articular bee venom injection had a significant effect on the pain reduction, improved range of motion and knee function. Further well-designed, controlled studies and more cases are needed to define the effect of intra-articular bee venom injection on knee.
