Acupuncture for Shoulder Pain Relief


After a shoulder injury, I took some time off, not doing anything overhead and not doing anything to cause pain (pushups and bench press too). Two months later I did not feel any better. One visit with Todd for acupuncture, stim, and some stretching and massage, I feel so much better and have been able to do wallballs, snatch, pull-ups, and overhead squats within a week after my visit. He really spends quality time with you and doesn’t just automatically sign you up for more visits, it’s totally up to the patient and how they are feeling.
