Acupuncture For Neck & Shoulder Pain

Neck and shoulder pain is one of the three most frequently reported musculoskeletal problems. The majority of the adult population can recall experiencing an issue at some time in their life. 

Neck pain can be associated with symptoms that radiate to the arms or head and may involve one or several neurovascular and musculoskeletal structures such as nerves, nerve roots, intervertebral joints, discs, bones, muscle and ligaments.

Frozen or painful shoulder are common, painful and sometimes disabling condition that can last for months or years. The characteristic symptoms are pain, stiffness and limitation of active and passive shoulder movements (particularly external rotation of the joint).

Acupuncture is believed to relieve neck and shoulder pain by stimulating nerves to release endorphins to change the way the brain processes pain. It can reduce inflammation, improve muscle stiffness and increase joint mobility.

I’ve had a great deal of success treating neck & shoulder pain. If you’d like to book you can do so online. Alternatively, you can email or contact me via our contact form.
