We were going for the ball when we had a shoulder to shoulder challenge and a few places on my arm went numb for a couple of seconds. Now I am having pain when I lift my arm over my head. The pain is towards the top of the deltoid. I am worried because over the summer I dislocated my shoulder playing baseball and had to go to physical therapy and some visits to acupuncture to fix. The pain resembles the pain I had when I dislocated my shoulder but the bone isnt out of place this time. Any ideas on what I could have done to it?
you should try acupuncture! it does wonders! i’ll try to explain what oriental medicine thinks of dislocated shoulders and every symptom that comes afterward: you dislocated your shoulder because your hamstring and muscles energy (chi energy) around that area is deficient (=low) so it couldn’t withstand the pressure it was put under when you dislocated your shoulder. the it poped back into place but the energy didn’t recover. your body’s defensive energy (wei energy) tried to help and it got stuck around the area because it cant do much when your hamstring and muscle energy is deficient. so the pain that comes afterwards is basicly from the constant accumulation of wei energy around the points where it first got hit when you dislocated. i can almost bet that the pain that you feel its not easy to locate but its more of a cold current arround the area going down along the arm and up to the spine and neck. so, in accupunctre, what they’re going to do is rearange your chi energy that is afecting the hamstring and muscles of that area. right in the first consult you’ll feel positive effects such as more mobility without almost any pain. it’s a fairly easy treatment and it has a great rate of success. the needles dont hurt at all!!! hope it helps!!
