I have had recurrent shoulder pain for three years. At times it is very incapacitating. Can you help?

I have had recurrent shoulder pain for three years. At times it is very incapacitating. Can you help?

Yes. The shoulder's surrounding tissues cope with mechanical stress and are prone to a variety of degenerative and/or traumatic problems. The most common symptoms are pain and restricted range of motion.

There is a growing body of clinical evidence supporting the efficacy of acupuncture for pain relief. According to Dr. Bruce Pomeranz, a neurophysiologist, acupuncture stimulates the release of the body's own natural painkillers, endorphins. Repeated acupuncture potentiates the endorphin system, giving better results after each sequential treatment. The sooner you come in after the initial onset, the quicker you see positive results. Today, acupuncture is being increasingly recommended by doctors at leading medical centers - and people are feeling relief.

Shoulder disorders include sprains, tears, arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, or muscle inflammation. Acupuncture can also successfully treat sports injuries, elbow, back/muscle/disc, neck, wrist, hand, hip, knee, leg and foot pain.
