Shoulder Pain Resolved With Acupuncture
Shoulder pain is one of the most stubborn pains in the body. Western medicine finds it hard to treat and slow to heal, with a tendency to become nagging and chronic. That’s because the shoulder is a complex area controlled by numerous muscles, tendons and ligaments. The shoulder joint is incredibly flexible, yet vulnerable due to its inherent instability. If you’ll indulge the analogy, if the hip is a rhinoceros, the shoulder is a gazelle. Agile but fragile!
The Shoulder Pain Denver Acupuncture treatment delivers excellent results. Our treatment identifies and treats the injured muscles, tendons and ligaments that are responsible for your shoulder pain. Treating an injured muscle with acupuncture helps it heal much faster by increasing blood circulation in that area. It is targeted healing power.
If one of your shoulder muscles is in spasm, releasing it with acupuncture is the best way to heal that muscle. Treating inflamed tendons and torn ligaments with acupuncture also speeds the healing process by increasing blood circulation.
From a Chinese medicine perspective, pain in the shoulder is often due to blocked channels. Pain results when Qi (the internal energy of the body) is unable to flow properly through the channels. Acupuncture opens up the flow of Qi, allowing for faster and deeper healing.
The Shoulder Pain Denver Acupuncture treatment incorporates both Eastern and Western approaches at the same time. We release motor points, a technique used in physical therapy called dry needling. But we do much more than that. In addition, we open blocked channels (a Chinese medicine technique) simultaneously. We also stimulate organ function to help speed healing by increasing blood circulation and relaxing muscles, tendons and ligaments. This combined approach brings the fastest, most comprehensive healing to the shoulder. In addition, we nourish the Qi and blood of the body, which further speeds up healing. We also add points to reduce stress in patients. As you know, stress aggravates all types of pain and slows healing. So with acupuncture you are getting complete healing for the shoulder. And the results are amazing.
What To Expect From Your Shoulder Pain Denver Acupuncture Treatment
When you come in we will examine your shoulder, assess all aspects of your pain, identify areas of limited range of motion, and track the places where your pain radiates. Shoulder injuries often trigger pain radiating down the arms, into the hands and fingers. Likewise, pain can radiate up the shoulder, into the neck and head. We will then create a treatment plan and begin treatment.
The treatments are quite relaxing. Patients often fall asleep on the table. Your shoulder will start the healing process with the very first treatment. You will be able to see and feel improvement right from the start. And the best part is that the treatment is long lasting. As opposed to pain medications, our treatments are designed to heal the shoulder, not just bring temporary relief.
