Acupuncture Case Study – Patient with Severe Shoulder Pain – Part 4

I have given this patient one treatment for the past 2 weeks. She is responding well and reports a 60% improvement. I’m still getting significant twitching and alternatively treating her back and front.

Because the patient is improving, the rate of her improvement and I have treated many people for similar condition, I’m fairly certain I will give her 95% reduction in her pain and avoid surgery.

I always base this assessment on the idea that she takes measures to fortify her muscular weakness, changes some of her related body mechanics and perhaps comes for less frequent maintenance treatments.
