Most common shoulder problems result from two factors: 1.) prolonged mechanical strain and 2.) improper shoulder alignment. The treatment approach with acupuncture should consider both aspects. With acupuncture the change is started by releasing imbalances and balancing the shoulder joint (front to back).  After the joint is stabilized, local points of inflammation can be stimulated to promote blood flow and allow the body to send a healing response.  Moxibustion (heat therapy) treatment may also applied to certain acupuncture points to increase local tissue circulation and to induce an additional response.
