Results: After 20 minutes of intervention, the tension of the left upper limb flexor muscle group disappeared, the elbow flexor, wrist flexor, and finger flexor disappeared, and the elbow and wrist extension function of the left upper limb returned. Conclusions: The demonstration of this method highlights three aspects of significance: a) Functional acupuncture is still effective in patients with left upper limb flexion and spasm after stroke for more than one year. b) Demonstrated the immediate and outstanding effects of functional acupuncture and moxibustion in the intervention of stroke and upper limb flexion and spasm. c) Functional acupuncture is an effective method to instantly reproduce triceps resistance in patients with upper limb flexion spasms after stroke for more than one years.
