Acupuncture for Frozen Shoulder

Acupuncture for Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder is painful, stiffness and limited range of motion due to inflammation. Most commonly caused by inflammation of synovial tissue or thickening of synovial fluid.

How does acupuncture work for Frozen Shoulder?

Several studies have reported acupuncture treatment provide “significantly greater improvement” on frozen shoulder. Acupuncture can reduce inflammation by balancing immune system, and increasing blood and energy flow to the pain area which relieve pain and increase shoulder joint range of motion.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
