Written By Destination Wellness on January 16, 2020

acupunctureShoulder pain can be completely debilitating. 

It most-times result in headaches and migraines and make it nearly impossible to do everyday activities, like driving, carrying things, and even your job. 

Fortunately, your Manalapan chiropractor has the perfect remedy for shoulder pain – acupuncture treatments. 

Why Acupuncture Treatment Is a Great Option for Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is caused by several things, including:  

  • Muscle tension
  • Text neck
  • Pinched nerves
  • Poor posture
  • Obesity
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Rotator cuff dysfunction

Many of these problems lead to a lack of adequate blood and nutrient flow to various parts of the body, including the shoulders. 

Acupuncture treatment not only reduces shoulder pain, but it also improves energy, blood, and lymph flow through the body. 

Acupuncture help releases pain-relieving chemicals and hormones in the brain, too, which can be more effective than prescription drugs at reducing your pain. 

In addition to acupuncture treatments, your Manalapan chiropractor also suggests starting the right fitness program that can help. The combination of exercise and acupuncture will not only relieve pain, but it will also help improve your range of motion by stimulating the muscles in your neck, shoulders, and upper back. That will reduce pain now and prevent painful symptoms down the road. 

Why Destination Wellness Center Offers Acupuncture Treatment

Why would a Manalapan chiropractor offer anything other than chiropractic adjustments? It’s because a multi-tiered approach to wellness is the best course of action. 

Not only does Dr. Richard Allen offer adjustments and acupuncture, but his wife, Mrs. Michelle Gursky Allen, offers nutritional services. They view the body as a whole unit and know that things like nutritional deficiencies and lack of proper blood flow lead to painful symptoms. 

Offering multiple treatment options is a safe, effective way to manage and even eliminate your pain.
