SHOULDER PAIN

Ease Shoulder Pain with Acupuncture

Generally, relieving shoulder joint pain is hard because the shoulder joint is the most complex joint in the human body. The many muscles surrounding the shoulder make treating shoulder pain a complex task. Due to its shallow joint structure, the shoulder is the only joint that can rotate a full 360 degrees. However, the shallow joint can only handle so much weight, in comparison to the weight capacity of the adjoining socket. The difference between the capacity of the socket and the joint is the reason that the shoulder is so easy to dislocate.

The neck muscles, arm muscles, and the muscles on the upper torso are joined at the shoulder. They must all work together to keep the joint healthy and strong. If any one of the neighboring muscles is injured, it can indirectly cause shoulder pain. The injured muscle puts tension on the shoulder, straining the joint and producing pain.

Thus, shoulder pain means that one or several of the muscles mentioned above are out of balance. Typically, doctors and specialists only attempt to treat the shoulder pain or a single muscle. However, more imbalances will occur with this method of treatment because the whole group of muscles that requires treatment is still out of balance. For example, if both neck and arm muscles need treatment, but only the neck muscle is treated, then the neck muscle will become loose, and the arm muscle will still be tight. The tightness of the arm muscle will pull at the treated neck muscle, making the original pain worse than it was before. Also, all the muscles need to be properly rebalanced post-shoulder surgery because surgery only repairs the area of direct pain, as opposed to repairing all the muscles related to the shoulder. All the muscles need to be balanced properly after the surgery in order to prevent the pain from reoccurring.

This is why some shoulder cases extend from months to a couple of years. Eventually, some patients will require additional surgery. Dr. Park’s clinic has developed a technique to adjust all the muscles on each visit to achieve optimal muscle balance.

Shoulder pains must be treated as quickly as possible to prevent life-threatening health problems. Prolonged shoulder problems can affect long-term heart functions and increase the possibility of stroke.

Anyone who has battled sleepless nights because of shoulder pain will experience comfort and ease after visiting Dr. Park’s office for wholistic treatment.
