Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is a marvelous joint, and a pain in the butt. Fortunately for us, the complex structure of the shoulder joint allows for an incredible range of motion. We are able to move arms the way we do largely due to this flexibility. Unfortunately, the shoulder joint has relatively poor blood supply, so it is slow to heal when it is injured. Prevention is the best medicine for shoulder injuries.Different types of should pain:

  • Shoulder bursitis
  • Rotator cuff tendinitis
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome
  • Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
  • Shoulder instability
  • Shoulder arthritis
  • Biceps tendinitis
  • Labral tear


Fortunately, acupuncture is really good at improving circulation wherever it is applied. In Chinese medicine speak, we say acupuncture promotes the circulation of Qi and Blood. Qi and Blood are the healing regenerative forces of the body. Free-moving Qi and Blood also stops pain. Regardless of how you phrase it, acupuncture treats shoulder pain by invigorating the area, relaxing muscles and promoting healing.
