Stroke is a leading cause of disability worldwide, particularly among communities of color and the medically underserved. Sequelae include motor impairment of the upper and lower extremities, trunk, face, mouth and throat; sensory disorders include visual deficits, numbness, and pain; critical functions impacted include communication, eating, elimination, balance, and emotional regulation. Acupuncture can be extraordinarily useful in rehabilitation of the above impairments, as well as helping the body to restart the ‘Qi machine’ and recover its basic rhythms. 

Too often, school courses and research protocols jump to treating scalp and body points for motor impairment, before addressing more critical needs such as deep depression, or difficulty sleeping and waking, speaking, eating, or eliminating. This course introduces a basic framework for assessment and treatment planning in acute and chronic post-stroke care. The emphasis is on immediate application of skills that practitioners already have, in case of CVA among a practitioner’s family or patient base. For those interested in further study, reading and online resources are provided, along with resources for primary and secondary stroke prevention. The framework and its development can be found in Dr. Citkovitz’ PhD study (easily searched and freely available online).
