A New Approach to Poststroke Upper Limb Spasticity
Fine quartz crystals may be utilized to ease tension and tension as well as to stimulate internal organs. Tui Na is a rhythmic pressure manipulation and stimulation of the muscles and the meridian energies at specific acupuncture points. Tui Na can be used to treat externally along with cupping and moxibustion. Tui Na massage can have many beneficial effects, such as its ability to reduce the stress level and boost your mood.
Tui Na therapy has been practiced for thousands of years. It is believed that TuiNa therapy that worked wonders to repair broken bones was a part of the ancient Chinese culture. Chinese researchers presented the results from their research during the recent national gathering regarding alternative treatments and medical health care. Researchers reported that tui-na is a powerful antispastic action, decreasing both volume and weight of the dysfunctional tissues. It also improved overall function of the kidneys, the liver and pancreas, as well as spleen.
Numerous stroke patients from the United States have seen the positive effects of the stone. Through tests carried out by Swedish doctors and researchers, the antispastic effects of Tui Na showed promise for increasing the neurological functioning of stroke sufferers. Also, it has relaxation due to the remarkable effects it has on skin and muscles. Thus, Chinese health experts are advocating it as a treatment for patients suffering from strokes or other forms of brain damage. It's important because the evidence is mounting that na therapies can lower the deaths of those who suffer from stroke, specifically older persons.
In fact, the Chinese medical practitioners have for a long time been advocating its use in conjunction with other rehabilitation methods. However, in spite of this recommendation however, it was only in the last few years that largeand carefully-designed clinical trials have shown the beneficial effects that patients can reap from combining tui Na therapy with rehabilitation exercises as well as massage. Patients receiving both Tui Na stone therapy and rehabilitation massage had three times more probability of full recovery over those receiving standard medical treatment. A clinical study was conducted in the UK with up to 500 stroke victims.
The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Glasgow in the UK sufferers suffering with upper limb spasticity treated using standard medical attention or massage or the Chi (chi acupuncture) or Tui Na (chi gong or tea tui na). The duration of time required to heal was identical to both categories. Also, the study showed improvement in movement and function. However, there was a significant different in the degree of improvements patients who received Tui Na stone treatment saw when compared with those who were treated with medical care. Researchers found that patients who used the Na stones experienced a better improvement in their motor function which was apparent on post-operative day 1.
The Glasgow study is significant because it offers the first proof that the na may improve function in the absence of conventional medical treatments. Additionally, it offers the first proof that NA can boost recovery for people suffering from spasticity in the upper limbs in addition to improving muscular function while reducing the risk of complications. As the study was conducted with a limited number of patients, it is not clear if its use could have any long term effect for patients. However, it is well-known that the na could be utilized as an alternative to prescription medication for those with chronic ailments such as muscular dystrophy and chronic fatigue syndrome.
In the end, the Glasgow study provides further proof that the na may be an essential and effective treatment for patients who suffer from strokes or who have developed poststroke upper limb spasticity. It is noteworthy that patients receiving medical treatments only experienced an increased risk of having adverse effects after using tui-na. The findings confirm the significance for tui na to be used in the rehabilitation process following a stroke, or any other orthotic treatment.
