Before you consult with our shoulder specialist, we will require you to register and provide us with your personal information and medical history, if needed. Our TCM practitioner will then assess your condition by reviewing all the information you’ve provided including your symptoms. Once our specialists complete your assessment, they will make a final diagnosis and recommend the proper treatment for your frozen shoulder pain.
TCM pain relief treatments for frozen shoulder pain may be one or a combination of the following:
Tui Na for shoulder pain relief
Tui Na is an ancient massage form that balances the body’s energy. It’s a TCM treatment for shoulder pain involving acupressure massage techniques such as stretching, pressing, kneading, and rolling and TCM principles to loosen up and remove Qi blockages in your shoulder. It stimulates the body’s pressure points using the fingers to promote better blood flow and circulation. It’s an effective technique for shoulder pain relief as it can help the body heal itself naturally. Tui Na massage is often combined with acupuncture for a more effective way to encourage proper Qi and blood flow to treat frozen shoulder.
TCM Acupuncture for shoulder pain
Sing Kang TCM’s signature pain-free acupuncture is also used for treating frozen shoulders, and works to restore normal blood flow by stimulating blood circulation in the body, releasing ‘pain killer’ hormones to clear Qi blockages and provide frozen shoulder pain relief. The sight of needles may be intimidating for some; however, with our TCM acupuncture treatment for shoulder pain, you don’t have to worry about feeling any discomfort. Our TCM practitioner will access your body’s acupoints to clear any Qi blockages and restore your blood flow. As a result, your body will release pain-killing hormones and provide shoulder pain relief. Acupuncture and Tui Na are often used together as pain management treatments for shoulder pain.
Frozen shoulder cupping treatment
Cupping treatments use special cups to aid in restoring the flow of your Qi by creating a vacuum that improves blood circulation. This stimulates blood flow and restores balanced Qi flow in a targeted part of the body, making it a suitable shoulder pain relief treatment caused by long-term injuries or prolonged exposure to coldness. This treatment helps detoxify your body’s immune system, relax your muscles, and break down any muscle fibre and fascia adhesions. With frequent and follow-up treatments, you’ll regain mobility in your shoulders and feel shoulder pain relief.
TCM Moxibustion for shoulder pain
Moxibustion is a TCM technique for shoulder pain involving burning “moxa” (made from mugwort or wormwood), to warm the meridians in the body. Mugworts are dried, ground into cones or sticks, and lighted to be used in warming the body to relieve it from any pain and remove any pathogenic elements. This stimulates stagnated Qi flow and rids the body of excess cold and dampness, providing pain relief for frozen shoulders caused by these factors. Moxibustion is often used to complement acupuncture in treating frozen shoulder and provide shoulder pain relief.
