Neck and Shoulder

Neck and shoulder symptoms


Neck & shoulder stiffness

Chronic stiff neck and shoulders are not only painful, but are the “source of all illnesses,” causing various symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, increased blood pressure, numbness in the hands, and decreased grip strength.

In the case of stiff neck and shoulders, there are two types of people: those who feel good when touched and those who do not want to be touched because of the pain, but our clinic can treat both types of stiff neck and shoulders.

Please feel free to come to our clinic because we use acupuncture, moxibustion, and craniofacial therapy to loosen you up comfortably without any strain on your body.


Sleeping wrong, crick in the neck

This is a condition in which stiffness or other stresses become so great that the neck becomes painful and immobile.

It is called “sleeping sickness” because the neck may become immobile when you wake up in the morning, but it is also included in “sleeping sickness” when the neck gradually becomes immobile during daily life or when the neck suddenly becomes immobile after performing a certain action.

Mild cases will get better in one session. If other factors are involved and the neck is immobile, several treatments are necessary.


Frozen shoulder

Since the disease is common in people in their 40s and 50s, it is called “forty or fifty shoulder” and represents a condition in which the shoulder joint is stiff and immobile. In this disease, movement of the shoulder joint improves once the patient receives acupuncture and moxibustion.

The disease gradually improves as it repeats improvement and hardening, and receiving acupuncture and moxibustion increases the speed of improvement.

If you wait for spontaneous healing, you will have pain and limited range of motion for at least six months at the earliest, and for a year or more in the long run.


Hand pain, numbness, decreased grip strength

Patients with thoracic outlet syndrome, which is caused by strong stiffness in the neck-shoulder and thoracic region, are basically well-tolerated.


Many patients come to our clinic with pain and shakiness caused by compression of nerve roots due to deformation of the cervical spine. In this case, it is recommended to receive acupuncture once a week for about 3 months.

Some patients come to our clinic after being told that surgery is an option but are told that surgery involves risks such as having a scalpel inserted in the front of the neck and not knowing if the surgery will make them feel better.

We also have patients who have undergone cervical spine surgery.


Tendovaginitis, Spring Finger

Tendonitis is a disease with a good course of action.

If the condition has progressed to spring finger, it will take time to improve because it has occurred over many years. Many people with spring finger have problems with their cervical spine, and I carefully treat them from the neck and shoulders to the spring finger.



The number of treatments depends greatly on the magnitude of the accident, the shock, and the severity of the symptoms.

The body is stiff and tense, so I take a gentle approach to the body. With the approval of the insurance company, many people receive acupuncture treatment with their insurance.
