  Abstract Objective: to observe the clinical curative effects of the bilateral alternating point penetration method versus conventional acupuncture on patients with ischemic stroke hemiplegia. Methods: 50 patients were randomized into the bilateral alternating point penetration method group (treatment group, n= 25) and the routine acupuncture group (control group, n = 25). Both groups had evaluation of clinical signs and symptoms before and after 4 courses of treatment. Results: reduction rate of symptoms and signs scores after treatment in the treatment group and control group was 13.760 ± 7.061 and 7.061 ± 6.947, respectively, with the treatment group showing a more significant decrease (P < 0.05); the total effective and markedly curative rates were 92 and 76%, and 80 and 36% in the treatment and control group, respectively, among which the markedly effective rate of the two groups displayed significant difference (P< 0.05). Conclusion: the curative effect of bilateral alternating point penetration method was superior to conventional acupuncture therapy in the treatment of ischemic stroke hemiplegia.
