Hi,

Thanks for writing in.
It is very difficult to tell if he will be able to recover completely or not. There is no way of finding out for sure. Please continue with speech therapy. Hopefully he will respond to it. It requires patience and perseverance. Please be optimistic and do not give up.
Good luck!

Thanks for answering for me. I heard that CVA people will be cpmpletely cure by accupucture (chinese therapy). Is it possible?

Hi,

I am not aware if acupuncture can cure CVA completely or not. However alternate therapies like acupressure and acupuncture have been known to benefit patients with stroke. There is a recent study which suggests that acupuncture can speed up recovery in patients with stroke.

It is worth a try. Good luck!
