Apoplexy, known as wind stroke in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), is usually seen in hypertension, cerebral hemorrhage and cerebral infarction as defined in modern medicine. At present, about a third of the provinces and municipalities in China have entered the era of an ageing society. There are about two million aged people who suffer from wind stroke each year in China, among whom about 70% have various sequelae. With the increase of the ageing population and the development of medical science, the morbidity and survival rate of apoplexy and the rate of its resultant after paralysis occurs have also increased. The author has written this book based on over ten years of clinical treatment and research into paralysis due to wind stroke. Since medical terms and the body positions are difficult for general readers to understand, this book is illustrated in detail with necessary explanations for readers' convenience. In order to make it easy for readers to understand the directions and range of the physiological movement of the main joints, so as to correctly do functional exercises, Chapter 2 is devoted to the illustration and explanation of the movement of each main joint in the human body. The book introduces different nursing and rehabilitative therapeutic methods according to the acute stage, convalescence and sequelae, making it more convenient for readers to study and manipulate.
