Abstract
Objective to observethe clinical effect of electroacupuncture with different frequency in the treatment of hemidysesthesia after stroke. Methods Sixty patients with hemidysesthesia after stroke were randomly divided into treatment group and control groups, with 30 cases in each group. Both groups were treated with electroacupuncture with the same acupoint selection. The electroacupuncture frequency was 100 Hz in the treatment group and 1 Hz in the control group. The clinical effficacy of the two groups was observed after 30 days of treatment. Results The total effective rate and the recovery rate of the treatment group were 93.3% and 80.0%, respectively, and the control group were 86.0% and 43.3%, respectively The difference in the total effective rate between the two groups was statistically significant (p < 0.05). And the difference in the recovery rate between the two groups was statistically significant (p < 0.05). There were was a statistically significant differences in the scores of limb dysesthesia score between the two groups after treatment and before treatment (p < 0.01). There was a statistically significant difference in the limb dysesthesia score after treatment between the treatment group and control group (p < 0.05). Conclusions Electroacupuncture is an effective method to treat poststroke hemidysesthesia. High frequency electroacupuncture is more obvious than low frequency electroacupuncture.
