Whenever you experience pain in the body there are sensory nerves firing and you may or may not have a structural problem which is causing the sensory dysfunction, in the majority of cases chronic pain has no structural cause. Doctors who are not experts in the field of neurology assume that if there is pain then there must be a structural cause for it. A structural cause would be soft tissue, disc, bone or object pressing on a sensory nerve which triggers it to constantly fire. This is not an accurate assumption to make.
The complexity of the shoulder joint makes pain in that joint problematic to treat. The shoulder joint is a ball and socket which is attached via ligaments and protected by cartilage. Any wearing down of the cartilage or ligament damage will obviously cause pain when the joint is used. Surgery is the only way to significantly reduce pain caused by worn cartilage Acupuncture can however help you manage the pain whilst waiting for surgery.
Arthritic pain is associated with joints, therefore the pain can be felt anywhere on the body and it can be extensive or limited to one joint such as the knee, shoulder or low back. Arthritis is an extremely widespread health problem but with early diagnosis and treatment the pain will not become debilitating. It is possible to live with arthritis for a prolonged period of time with zero pain if you are prepared to make some lifestyle changes which include alternative therapies.
Acupuncture treatments can provide relief from arthritis because they treat the whole person’s wellbeing rather than just the disorder. Those that have arthritis will often have it in more than one place and the use of analgesics to help the pain will only work for a limited time.
Prolonged pain even when it’s not severe can cause a reduction in movement and lead to the loss of enjoyment in life as the pain is a constant thing. Long-term sufferers of any kind of pain are susceptible to depression as they can no longer do activities they had previously loved. Often chronic pain leads people to feel they suffer alone which results in loneliness.
