Do you have a frozen shoulder?
Is it getting difficult to even put your clothes on? Frozen shoulders are the worst! Lucky for you acupuncture can help thaw out that frozen shoulder.
Shoulder pain is very common and it’s so frustrating for people to have their doctor shrug their shoulders and tell you to wait it out. Waiting for shoulder pain to go away is the WORST advice you can take. The best advice to take is to make an acupuncture appointment.
Usually shoulder pain can be resolved in a relatively short amount of time when given the proper care. Unfortunately, many people wait until their day-to-day life is completely destroyed by shoulder pain. Waiting can lead to chronic inflammation, increased sensitivity, and potentially tissue damage.
Acupuncture is the perfect fit for healing that shoulder pain.
When we feel pain over and over, our body and brain develops a bad habit that starts to snowball and can keep getting worse. Acupuncture works with the Body and Nervous Systems to heal pain.
Acupuncture helps the muscles, tendons and ligaments relax and regenerate. But acupuncture doesn’t just stop there at the mechanics. Science has shown that acupuncture works on the Autonomic Nervous System. What that means is that acupuncture helps our brain stop sending pain signals, and at the same time this lowers stress hormones in the body. When this happens, the body can then get back to work and repair the shoulder. The important part for you is that your shoulder feels better and you can get back to doing what you love.
The best part about it is that acupuncture is relaxing. Most people fall asleep during their treatments. If you know someone that has a shoulder pain, be sure to ask them: “Have you tried acupuncture for that?” and send them to The WellBridge Clinic in South East Portland.
