Stroke and Parkinson's disease are both frequently seen in the neurology department. These conditions affect a great number of individuals around the world, most commonly appearing in the elderly. Although present pharmaceutical approaches to treatment achieve certain therapeutic effect, many side effects usually result. Furthermore, these approaches fail to prevent progression. Systematic literature review shows that the application of Chinese medicine results in a definite therapeutic effect with very few side effects. Chinese medicine applies a strategy of regulation while both strengthening physical resistance and eliminating pathogens, or methods may be also applied that simultaneously tonify and free the vessels, depending upon specific pattern differentiation. Both clinical experience and experimental research demonstrate that Chinese medicine offers superior therapeutic results when combined with standard rehabilitation methods. This book is an important component text in the series The Clinical Practice of Chinese Medicine. The intention of this book is to introduce overseas readers to the Chinese medical experience, while offering a variety of complementary treatment methods for both stroke and Parkinson's disease. We hope that this book will help our readers gain an overall understanding of Chinese diagnosis and treatment methods, as well as providing specific therapeutic approaches for patients suffering from stroke and Parkinson's disease.
