Acupuncture can help with acute, chronic and ‘frozen’ shoulder pain. It’s the most common reason clients come into our clinic. Acupuncture for Toowoomba shoulder pain sufferers can be tremendously helpful in naturally managing an acute or chronic shoulder injury and may even help resolve the pain completely.

Acupuncture can reduce pain naturally by releasing chemical compounds in the body that relieve pain, by overriding pain signals in the nerves or by allowing energy (Qi) or blood to flow freely through the body helping damaged or torn tissues to heal as published in  2015 . It also aims to decrease inflammation, release tight muscles, and increase range of motion.

The shoulder is the most movable joint in the human body. Made up of four muscles and their tendons, referred to as the rotator cuff, which allows the shoulders wide range of movement. Shoulder pain can be caused by repeated strain or from a one-off movement resulting in one of the following:

  • Inflammation
  • Poor posture
  • Pinched nerve
  • Tendon damage.
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Rotator Cuff injury
  • Bursitis
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Recovering from surgery.

Having a treatment at the Release Health & Wellness Toowoomba shoulder pain clinic involves understanding the limited range of movement that a client is struggling with. Testing the shoulder’s movement by lifting arms up in front of you, then behind you and finally raise them above your head. This gives us an understanding what is happening and what is required to help reduce the pain and discomfort you are suffering. We will use proximal and distal point for the best possible pain relief. In conjunction with other modalities like TCM massage, cupping, gua sha, moxibustion and dietary changes and stress management to help support our body in a quick recovery.
