For treatment of pain conditions, acupuncture is our primary treatment approach. Acupuncture is a safe, effective, and generally painless therapy which can often be highly effective in treatment of shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can arise from conditions affecting the muscles, tendons, and joint. Our care is often very helpful in the healing stage after an injury, and during a flare-up of chronic pain conditions affecting the shoulder.

From an acupuncturist's perspective, pain can be caused by a blockage in the body's vital energy. Acupuncture provides relief from pain by clearing blockages and promoting the smooth flow of this energy. As that happens, the circulation improves and the muscles relax, which makes it feel better.

Some types of shoulder pain respond very quickly to treatment or heal without treatment. Some injuries to the rotator cuff can result in chronic pain. This pain is not always in the area of the shoulder, but may be located in the upper back or other muscles surrounding the shoulder. In some of these cases, the muscle may not heal fully without surgery. In these cases, acupuncture is often helpful in reducing pain for between 1 and 6 weeks after each session, and it may also be helpful during the recovery period from surgery.
