Whether it be an acute injury, chronic discomfort, or “frozen” shoulder, acupuncture can help manage your shoulder pain.
Shoulder pain is a common reason patients come in to see us. Acupuncture and massage can be tremendously helpful in naturally managing an acute or chronic shoulder injury, and may even help resolve the pain completely. How does it do this? Acupuncture and massage can reduce pain naturally by decreasing inflammation, improving blood flow to the area, and helping damaged or torn tissues to heal.
The shoulder is one of the only “ball and socket” joints in the body - giving it tremendous flexibility but also leaving it vulnerable to multiple types of injury. A group tendons called the “rotator cuff” work to secure this joint, however, if one link in the group is broken it can throw off the entire musculature. This is often what we see in our patients coming in with shoulder pain - one broken piece is causing widespread pain and decreased functionality.
Acupuncture Treatment for Shoulder Pain
Our skilled practitioners will work with patients to locate where the cause of their pain is coming from. If a patient is coming in with an established diagnosis for the pain, we will use this information to help shape our treatments. As with many other types of pain, acupuncture works well when used alongside massage and other healing modalities. Our practitioners will work with your team to make sure you get back to the activities you love as quickly as possible. Types of Shoulder Pain Chinese Medicine can help with:
