Acupuncture helps with common shoulder pain problems.

The  shoulder has a design  flaw.  The acromion sits above the supraspinatus tendon.  This means that when lifting the arm the tendon rubs against the bone. The body has a fix for this. It has  Bursa which sits between the bone and the tendon. This stops friction. However, over years the bursa tends to become swollen.  This causes pressure on the supraspinatus tendon and other tendons around the shoulder.  This impingement then leads to tendonitis, or inflammation of the tendons.  Thus the main causes of pain in the shoulder are bursitis and rotator cuff tendonitis.

Acupuncture assists with pain and inflammation

When the bursa is swollen and inflammed it is called bursitis.  Acupuncture helps to reduce the swelling and inflammation.  By needling around the area of pain it helps to take the pressure off the other tendons. The rotator cuff tendonitis is also improved with acupunctur.  The inflammatory pain is how the body warns us to rest the area and avoid moving it.

Most shoulder pain will settle after some months.
