Some Health Issues We Treat
« Acupuncture Outperforms Drug Therapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis | Main | Chronic Heart Failure and Acupuncture, "Impressive Results" »

Cerebral Vasospasm Treated by Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology

A recent Chinese study demonstrated impressive results for patients suffering from cerbral vasospasm, a severe constriction of the arteries of the subarachnoid cavity of the brain. This type of problem can lead to decreased blood flow to the area and may cause ischemia, infarction, stroke and death. (a summary of the paper may be read here).

The research showed that,  

... combining acupuncture, herbal medicine and pharmaceutical medication together is significantly more effective than using only drugs.

 Here, at the clinic, we treat vasospasm but also many of the sequelae such as stroke paralysis and aphasia.
