Shoulder Pain

 

Upon assessment of each unique case, the acupuncturist may decide to use points at the affected area (local) or away from the area (distal) for the insertion of needles. These trigger points would be along acupuncture meridians that transverse the painful part of the body. From an acupuncture standpoint, pain results from a blockage in the meridian, and properly applied acupuncture can remove those blockages.
In Chinese medicine it is thought that Qi and blood are two healing and regenerative forces in the body. Acupuncture promotes the circulation of both Qi and blood, which in turn stops pain. So simply put, acupuncture treats shoulder pain by stimulating the area to improve Qi and blood flow, relaxing the muscles and promoting healing.

Acupuncture treatment focuses on reducing inflammation, improving blood flow and decreasing pain.  Acupuncture treats the chronic injuries that don’t respond well to conventional treatment.
