Neck and Shoulder Pain

Neck and Shoulder Pain

Today, one of the most common acupuncture applications is to help with pain, and we have many enquiries about neck and shoulder pain from people who sitting at a desk all day.

Beside constant and repetitive local stress, neck and should pain can also have other variety of causes such as strain, trauma, soft tissue injuries, "whiplash", hypertension, and others. So, what differs acupuncture from other therapies?

At ACATCM College Clinic, we exam the whole body to find the optimized treatment for each patient. For example, in Qi Gong we say relax the shoulders to relax the body; in Tai Ji we believe the position of the toes directly affects the support and posture. Emotional, mechanical and internal factors will also be examined.

Meridian system and energy balancing methods are fundamentals for acupuncture. Since our body is integrated by series of channels, the location of pain and stiff muscles often blocking the meridians going through the region. Locating key points to generate open flow of energy will promote healing process immediately.
