Washington: Acupuncture does not appear to help in stroke recovery, reveals a new study.Acupuncture is often used to supplement traditional stroke rehabilitation, although its effectiveness is uncertain.This study, perhaps the most comprehensive to date as it includes trials published in English language and Asian journals, was a systematic review conducted by researchers in South Korea and the United Kingdom. They included 10 studies (out of a potential 664) with a total of 711 patients who had had strokes."Few randomized, sham-controlled trials have tested the effectiveness of acupuncture during stroke rehabilitation," wrote Dr. Edzard Ernst, Peninsula Medical School, Exeter, England with coauthors."The majority of the existing studies do not suggest that acupuncture is effective," he said.
