Shoulder Impingement

Why Acupuncture is Perfect for Your Shoulder Injury

As you may have already figured out, it is quite easy to suffer a shoulder injury if you’re an athlete.

Skating toward the boards to track down the puck, you are greeted by an opposing defenseman who promptly slams you into the plexiglass and strips you of the puck, stifling your chance in the offensive zone.

As a quarterback, your job is to take care of the ball and move your team up the field with crisp, responsible passes. The play is set in motion, and you see your receiver break to a soft spot in coverage. You are just about to throw the ball but are instead met with a sudden impact that sends your shoulder into the cold ground and the ball bouncing to the other team.

There are many different scenarios that can cause a shoulder injury. Whether you are playing hockey, football, basketball or lifting weights, you are susceptible to shoulder problems such as:

  • Tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Bursitis
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Sprain
  • Tear

You can try to be safe when playing sports, but injuries will occur. At NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine, we are ready to get you back in action. We believe that acupuncture is a great treatment for whatever shoulder injury you may have.

Test of Time

Acupuncture has stood the test of time. The practice is rooted in Daoism, and is believed to have originated in China. It was first documented close to 100 BCE, although it could have been practiced many years before that date.

Safe and Sure

This method is both safe and sure. You might be anxious about getting tiny needles placed into your skin, but most patients only feel a slight tingling sensation and no pain. Acupuncture relies on the strategic placement of these needles to improve health and manage pain. During this treatment, we insert needles at places where muscles and nerves are stimulated by natural pain-killing chemicals. Blood flow is also improved.

Why Us?

Our staff of physicians, acupuncturists, chiropractors, physical therapists, physician assistants, sports medicine practitioners, and surgeons are dedicated to providing you with the very best care. Our goal is to provide treatment and educate our patients to help lessen the risk of reinjury. We have five convenient locations throughout Central Jersey, and every member of our team will work with you to put you back in the game.
