Safety Of Acupuncture In People With Mild Strokes?
good afternoon, i want to ask My mother previously had a history of high blood pressure, cholesterol, and gout. my mom also has a pretty fat body. Lately, my mom has occasionally had difficulty speaking (slurred) but it’s not too severe, and usually it returns to normal, at that time I didn’t think that it was a symptom of a stroke because the rest of the body still looked normal. after being taken to acupuncture (because it is often treated), it turns out my mother had a mild stroke, there my mother was stabbed with a needle in the area of her face and according to her experts, my mother had to therapy again a few days after. Now the first question, can my mom recover from a mild stroke? Is treatment with account safe? can the mild stroke that my mom be experiencing get worse? although not completely cured, is there another way to treat strokes that are fairly effective? please explain. thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Stroke is a condition that occurs when a person's blood flow to the brain is disrupted, either due to a blockage or bleeding in the brain. This condition is characterized by weakness in one side of the limbs and impaired speech or loose mouth.
Mild stroke is usually a term for the condition of TIA (transient ischemic attack) and RIND (reversible ischemic neurological deficit). Both of these conditions are temporary, the difference is that TIA usually only lasts in less than 24 hours and RIND can take up to 1-3 weeks. Those who have experienced TIA or RIND have a higher risk of having a stroke later in life.
Among the factors that increase stroke risk are:
Overweight or obese
High blood pressure
Smoking both active and passive
Lack of exercise
Have heart disease
Having a family with similar complaints
Regarding your question, if the context is still a mild stroke, it can improve on its own in a few hours, and the treatment given is more aimed at preventing the person from having a real stroke. So that minor strokes can get worse. If someone has had a stroke, depending on how severe the stroke is, there are those who can still return to their normal daily activities, even if they are not 100% perfect. The thing to remember is to immediately bring a person suspected of a stroke to the hospital emergency room, because stroke management plays with time. The sooner the better and easier recovery will be in the future.
Then, acupuncture itself is one of the traditional treatments that has been recognized in the world of health and now there are specialists who own acupuncture. One of the benefits provided is related to stroke, such as helping to overcome obesity and overcome discomfort due to stroke. What you need to know is that you should do this acupuncture therapy at the hospital, by consulting a doctor. So your mother can get acupuncture therapy at the same time being medically controlled at once. So, hopefully answering your question.
