ABSTRACT
<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To observe the improvements of synchronous treatment of bilateral scalp acupuncture and rehabilitation training on activities of daily life in patients with cerebral infarction at acute phase, so as to compare the efficacy differences between scalp acupuncture at bilateral and affected side as well as differences between synchronous and non-synchronous treatment.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Ninety patients of acute-phase cerebral infarction with motor dysfunction were randomly divided into three groups. The observation group was treated with synchronous treatment of scalp acupuncture at the Dingzhongxian (middle line of vertex), bilateral Dingnieqianxiexian (anterior oblique line of vertex-temporal) and bilateral Dingniehouxiexian (posterior oblique line of vertex-temporal) and rehabilitation training; the control group A was treated with synchronous treatment of affected scalp acupuncture at the Dingzhongxian, affected Dingnieqianxiexian and affected Dingniehouxiexian and rehabilitation training; the control group B was treated with bilateral scalp acupuncture for 4 h, followed by rehabilitation training. All the patients took the treatment once a day, and 6 days for a course of treatment for total of 4 courses. The modified Barthel index (MBI), activities of daily living (ADL) and Fugl-Meyer motor assessment (FMA) were used to perform efficacy assessment before treatment, in the 14th days of treatment and in the 28th days of treatment in three groups.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>After treatment, three indices at each time point were superior to those before the treatment in three groups (all P<0.01) ; the improvements of ADL and FMA in the observation group after 28 days of treatment were superior to those in the control group A and control group B (all P<0.05), and the improvement of MBI was superior to that in the control group B (P<0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The synchronous treatment of bilateral scalp acupuncture and rehabilitation training could significantly improve the activities of daily life and motor function in patients with cerebral infarction at acute phase, which is superior to scalp acupuncture at affected side and non-synchronous treatment.</p>
