Shoulder Pain

Acupuncture for Neck & Shoulder Pain - Bethel, CT

Acupuncture for Neck & Shoulder Pain - Bethel, CT

Shoulder pain is an extremely common problem due to the complexity and potential for overuse and injury of that area of the body. In many cases the problem stems from a sport (or other) injury, exercise program, work related stress or strain, or arthritis. Similar to back pain, it is common among people of all ages. It can be felt as a dull pain, sharp pain, or described as a feeling of overall tightness in the area.

Treating shoulder pain requires a complete diagnosis of the root cause of the problem. In many cases, the pain, numbness, or discomfort can spread to other regions of the body, including the head, neck, arms, and lower back.

Acupuncture is very helpful for all shoulder issues. We treat local point sites, and also include symptoms-shoulder-pain2points at the neck area. Relieving the extra tension provides immediate improvement. There are so many tendons and connecting tissue structures that enable the movement of the neck and arms, which we all store our stress and concern there. It is easy for nerves to get irritated in the mix. Acupuncture gives quick and steady improvement. It is a gentle, and painless treatment, and relaxing, as well.

Patient Testimonials

I Had Such Acute Back and Shoulder Pain I Couldn’t Even Get Out of Bed

“I had such acute back and shoulder pain I couldn’t even get out of bed. I had limited range of motion in my neck and shoulder. After having acupuncture treatments from Ingri three times a week, I felt relief after 2-3 weeks! The acupuncture treatment along with my heating pad worked wonders for me!” V. Gilford, CT

Only One Treatment Got Me Back to My Wrestling Championship

“I wrestle for my high school team, and have had right shoulder pain for over a week. The pain level would flare up to 7 on a scale of 1-10. With championships looming I was freaking out. Acupuncture cleared up the pain completely with only one treatment!!! It was awesome.”  R. O’Hagan, Trumbull, CT

Acupuncture Has Helped My Shoulder Pain More Than PT or Chiropractic

“I came to Ingri with shoulder and neck pain. I have received ten treatments so far, and have experienced at least 70% improvement. Acupuncture has really helped a lot. At the beginning the pain was horrendous. I was rear-ended in a car accident. Acupuncture has helped me more than physical therapy and chiropractic treatments. Thank you!” C. Paquette, Bridgeport, CT

Ingri Was the Only One Who Could Take My Bursitis Pain Away

“After other medical practitioners had been unsuccessful in treating my bursitis, I had reached the point of not being able to lift my arm. I was depressed and desperate at the loss of function. I couldn’t trust the arm to perform as needed. After a short series of treatments, I was pain free and regained total use of my shoulder and the bursitis has not recurred. I, the skeptic, have become a believer in the benefits acupuncture can create. Looking for a concerned, knowledgeable specialist interested in your total health? Look no further than Ingri.” R. Wendschuh, Redding, CT

My Shoulder Pain Was Almost Gone After One Session

“I suffered from chronic shoulder pain, and after only one awesome treatment, I saw 80% improvement, and am in much less pain! Thanks, Ingri! J. Manes, Newtown, CT” K. Morten, Bethel, CT

Acupuncture Saved Me From Having Surgery On My Rotator Cuff

“I had a partial tear of my rotator cuff, and my doctors wanted to do surgery. If I had done this, I would have been out of work for up to 6 to 8 months. I was working next door to Ingri’s office in Wilton, and I could not raise my arm. She said to come over after work, and I had two treatments with her. That has been about four years now, and I can move my arm in all directions with no pain at all. I do recommend this treatment.” Gerry S., CT
