Abstract

Objective : The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of tong's acupuncture on recovery of motor disorders in stroke patients. Methods : Twenty two patients with poststroke-hemiplegia were randomized into two groups. Ten patients(test group) treated by 2 methods-tong's acupuncture and body acupuncture. The other twelve patients(control group) treated only by body acupuncture. The activity of daily living was measured with a National Institutes of Health stroke scale(NlHSS) and Modified Barthel Index(MBI). The therapy was performed one a day for 2 weeks. Results: In terms of score of NIHSS. the test group showed statistically meaningful decrease after 2 week treatment. but the control group showed statistically meaningful decrease after I week(p<0.05). And in terms of score of MBI. the test group showed statistically meaningful increase after 2 week treatment. but the control group showed statistically meaningful increase after I week(p<0.05). There was no statistically meaningful difference after 1 and 2 week treatment between the groups. Conclusions: These results support that test group has almost same effectness compared with control group in improvement of the activity of daily living of poststroke-hemiplegic patients.
