Effects of Acupuncture Treatment on Poststroke Motor Recovery and Physical Function - Pilot Study

Completed

Phase N/A Results

Results

No differences between treatment groups were found in the total FM or the total FIM, but statistically significant benefit due to acupuncture was seen in the FM lower extremity motor function subscale (P = 0.01) and the tub/shower transfer mobility subscale of the FIM (P = 0.03). Marginally significant benefit due to acupuncture was noted for the toilet transfer mobility subscale of the FIM (P = 0.09).
