It does not matter what type of shoulder issue you have. Acupuncture can tackle most shoulder pain safely, naturally, and with long lasting relief. Read today’s blog post to learn how acupuncture resolves shoulder pain.
What type of shoulder pain do you have? First, there is pain in the front of the shoulder. That would make it hard to lift up objects in front of you, or reach overhead. Second, your pain might be on the side of the shoulder, making it difficult to reach out laterally. Third, your pain may be in the back of the shoulder or between the shoulder blades. In all these cases, acupuncture resolves shoulder pain best.
Shoulder pain can come from a muscle spasm, muscle tear, muscles damaged from repetitive use, arthritis (which is damage to the joint), tendinitis, bursitis or ligament damage. In all of these cases, acupuncture brings relief by helping the body heal itself.
Why is that important? Because very often our injuries will not heal on their own. We get “stuck” in our injuries and our pain becomes chronic. Acupuncture dramatically increases your body’s ability to heal by increasing Qi and blood circulation in the area suffering from injury.
The Importance of Qi Circulation
We are all familiar with blood circulation. But Qi circulation may be new to you. Acupuncture works with Qi, or energy, in the body. Stuck Qi is the most common cause of pain. Qi needs to flow smoothly through channels (also known as meridians).
Shoulder pain develops when the channels in and around the shoulder joint get blocked and Qi is unable to flow. Acupuncture resolves shoulder pain by getting the Qi to flow properly again.
How It Works
Acupuncture needles are inserted at specific points to open the channels and restore free flow of Qi. They are powerful tools for healing, even though they are so small. The treatments are relaxing. Many of our shoulder pain patients fall asleep during their sessions.
In addition to opening channels, acupuncture also directly heals the body. It releases muscles spasms, clears inflammation, resolves tendinitis, heals damaged ligaments, and repairs repetitive stress injuries.
Acupuncture needles are tiny (you will hardly feel them), but their impact is great. That’s why the Chinese have been using acupuncture for thousands of years. It works! In fact, it works better than other therapies available in America. It brings more long lasting results because it heals at the root level. It also has no side effects.
If you suffer from any type of shoulder injury, come in for a treatment. Acupuncture resolves shoulder pain naturally, with no negative side effects.

Acupuncture Resolves Shoulder Pain
We also treat frozen shoulder. That’s when you lose mobility in the shoulder joint and have limited range of motion. Acupuncture is often used in conjunction with physical therapy to resolve this challenging condition.
What our Clients are Saying
Tennis player with shoulder pain. Getting worse to the point of freezing up. Went to acupuncture. Starting easing immediately. Now back to tennis full force with no shoulder pain. I recommend this practice.
After shoulder surgery following a car accident, my shoulder was always stiff and achy. PT helped, but I suffered every day from shoulder pain. I went to Raleigh Acupuncture and they really helped. I did four treatments and my shoulder pain was completely gone.
I’m a golfer and started having trouble with my left shoulder over a year ago. My doctor wanted to do surgery, but I wanted to try other alternatives first. So I tried acupuncture. The folks at Raleigh Acupuncture were very professional, reasonably priced and did excellent work. They resolved my shoulder pain completely. I use them now for other pains in my post-50 body! Thank you Raleigh Acupuncture.
