ACU Treatment and Exercises to Enable Movement Out of Wheelchair

by , under Uncategorized

After SCI the skin lost sensation and muscles lost movement particular in the case of Completed Lesion of the cord, which is difficult for patient performed active exercises.

In the case of incomplete lesion of the cord partial of the muscles may still function possibly the patient can do part of active exercises. Because of the lesion of the spinal or peripheral nerve function and/or the loss nerve innervated into the muscles therefore the lower extremities muscles are lost muscles coordinated movement.

In this instance the active exercises are difficult to achieve better out come, is frequently, a strenuous active exercises could cause inflammation on the correlative joints.

The weakness of lower extremities muscles are difficult carrying heavy body weight the joint inflammation and malformation is the result, especially, if the patient is applies calipers for strenuous exercises. The inflammation also may initial the elbows or hands.

Usually, pain symptom revealed in the hip joints swollen knees joints and swollen and malformation in ankle joints. The patients are difficult continue carry on future exercises preferred sit on wheelchair.

ACU treatment essentially is dependent upon needle insertion to the nervous system naturally regain the skin sensation and muscles movement that takes time allowing the lesion nerve recovery. Usually many different methodology had been applies the result is difficulty achieved the lesion nervous system recovery.


The correct needling method can achieved the lesion nerve recovery, in which included spinal cord spinal nerve and peripheral nerve recovery and the nerve is innervated into the muscles.

In general the paraplegia recovery time less then quadriplegia and the completed lesion of the cord required more ACU treatment times than incomplete lesion of the cord.

In general the paraplegia patient in one year of intensive ACU treatment able stand up and two years after ACU treatment can walk out of wheelchair with the crutches.


Currently ‘Cellular treatment’ such as stem cells treatment not of necessary can shorter or allowing the nerve recovery. The newly grow nerve tissues not necessary able get through the scars or other obstructive tissues.


After nerve recovery how to achieve nerve tissues innervated into muscles still is a question. The enervated muscles cannot function properly; the Physiotherapy only makes the weakness muscles more harm than good.


ACU treatment can improve nerve recovery released the obstructive tissues allowed the nerve get through the neurovascular pathway and provided the pathway allowing the nerve innervated into the muscles the mater is knowing ACU treatment methodology and the whole treatment processes in which require times to achieve the result.


We can improve the needling methodology to shorter the duration of ACU treatment times, however, the fundamental nerve tissues recovery require specific times to recovery.

Actually paraplegia patient required two to three year’s intensive ACU treatment the patient can stand and walk with crutches and further ACU treatment allowed patient walk independently.


The exercises are following with the ACU treatment progression in different staged manage different type of exercises.

In early muscles recovery stated because the muscles are weakness more preferred gentle passive exercises. If the muscles are tone may gradually do more different active exercises such as standing or walking frame moving. At beginning standing preferred applies standing calipers provided better external support and started with gentle body movement. Only after the nerve tissues are innervated into the muscles the patient can do more different type of exercises.


Before muscles tone and the nerve innervated to the muscles strenuous exercises only created inflammation should be avoid.

The body natural stretching power is in skin reticular layer, connective tissues, fascia of the muscles included the strength of the muscle fibers also the tendons. Released the obstructive tissues in this area begin with gentle stretching exercises following the power of the breathing exercises can rapidly regain the muscles power.


In regular exercises require balance the muscles coordinated movement. The correlation between muscles is driving forces, the joints are fulcrum and the bone is level connection. For example: usually muscles move the bone and joint when the muscles are weak require bone move the muscles when it is necessary.

The exercises require more gentle and regular; very strong stretching in short period of time only strain or tear the muscles and joints.


A correct and good exercises will rapidly help the body recovery and require continue maintain those exercises for body well-being and independent regular life style.

After SCI the patient lower extremities is lost voluntary movement, which is loss of connection with the motor central nuclei. When the nerve is innervated into the muscles and still required special stretching exercises retraining the connection between the extremities muscles joints activities with motor central nuclei, especially the individual muscles stretching exercises such as strong biceps and triceps muscles movement, in abdominal walls muscles especially the rectus abdominis muscles.


The exercises need following the muscles is driving force the joint is fulcrum and the bone is lever correlation.

In SCI usually is dependent upon the bone move the weak muscles and joints go together. Slowly build it up the muscles strength and allow the muscles mobile the joint and bone.

The training required repeat several times the same active movement activated and reinforce the weakness muscles and connected with Cerebellum. These individual muscle or a group muscles retraining stretching exercises is far more significant than rush with the crutches or calipers because can avoid damage the weakness muscles or causing inflammation.
