This study was aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of moxibustion on dysphagia after stroke. Weconducted his study in the Department of Cardiovascular and Neurologic Diseases (StrokeCenter), Hospital of Oriental Medicine, Kyung Hee Medical Center, from May 1, 2005 to August1, 2006. After recruiting dysphagia patients after stroke, we applied the Direct Moxibustion (1.2 ×1.4 cm) to the Chon-Jung acupoint 5 times, and assessed its effect on swallowing reflex bySwallowing Provocation Test (SPT) before and 30 min after treatment. Effectiveness of theswallowing reflex was assessed by the Latency Time of Swallowing Reflex (LTSR) which waschecked from test starting to the onset of swallowing reflex. Thirty four subjects with dysphagiawere treated with moxibustion. The mean of the latency time in swallowing reflex was shortenedfrom 2.2 ± 0.9 to 1.5 ± 0.5 seconds after moxibustion, which had statistical significance (P < 0.001).We suggest that moxibustion at Chon-Jung could be useful for dysphagia after stroke. Furtherstudy with a randomized controlled trial compared to placebo is needed to confirm thissuggestion.
